One of our amazing pupils, played his bagpipes at the Banton Parish Church War Memorial at 6am in the morning.  He played the Battle’s O’er to mark the 100th year anniversary of the end of the Great War.

Later in the day, the pupils below represented the Banton and Kelvinhead Community Council by laying their wreath.  We are very proud of our pupils.

Be Helpful At Harvest Time

Traditionally, Harvest is a time for communities to help one another. This year we would like to help some of our elderly community in Banton by giving them a gift from our harvest table. We need your help to do this.

To encourage pupils to think about giving to others, as part of homework, we are asking for a donation of one item for the harvest table, each week, if able to.

At the end of the collection, a selection of pupils will help to bag the items, and give these out at the Harvest Service or deliver in the community.

Week beginning Item to bring in:

Week Beginning 3/9 tin of soup

Week Beginning 10/9 tin of beans

Week Beginning 17/9 tin of custard

Week Beginning 24/9 tin of fruit

Week Beginning 1/10 packet of biscuits

Week Beginning 8/10 Pasta and sauce in a packet or tin of meat

We would be delighted if you could suggest someone who would be happy to receive a gift from our table. Please phone or email the school. We will also visit and ask our local pensioners who meet on a Wednesday.
