What an exciting week we’ve had at Chad Vale!
Our Harvest Assembly on Monday showed us some
of the people who help us in school, and reminded
the children that we also ‘harvest’ good will, kindness
and support from lots of different people. The
children listened intently to the story of the ‘Giant
Onion’ and then sang 3 of their favourite harvest
The School Council interviewed Mrs. Carol Lyndon
this week about her charity work with Ghandigram
Orphanage. She was overjoyed when they informed
her that the Council had decided to support
Ghandigram for a further year and told us all about
how our previous donations have helped the
children in the orphanage. The interview was filmed
for Chad Vale Television (CVTV) and will be
displayed on the big screen after half term.

Yesterday our Chess Team played in a local tournament against St.
Patrick’s and St. George’s school. All of the Chad Vale competitors
played well, winning or drawing most of their games...and Chad
Vale ended up winning! A fantastic result– very well done!
Here are the machines laying down the final layer of tarmac on our almost completed
MUGA. To see them in action, visit the website and download the video from the Chad
Vale Television page! Over the last two days the fence has been erected and the only
jobs to complete now are the marking of the different pitches on the tarmac, and the
seeding and planting of the areas around the MUGA!
Please make sure that your child’s name is on all school uniform!
