A message from the Three Hares Governors
The Local Academy Committee governors would like to wish all children, parents and staff a very happy, safe, joyful and peaceful festive break. We would also like to thank all the staff for their extraordinary efforts to keep the schools as safe as possible. Behind the scenes, they have been working under extreme pressure to ensure the children have been able to experience school life as normally as possible, and have had to respond quickly and efficiently when cases of Covid-19 have arisen. Our thanks also go to parents and carers, who have worked with the schools so willingly to comply with the various measures that have been put in place to minimise the risk of spreading the virus. Have a wonderful Christmas, and we look forward to continuing our work with each of the Three Hares schools in the new year.
With our very best wishes
Three Hares Local Academy Committee governors
I am pleased to say that we managed to launch Chagford's Fundraising Strategy at the end of last week, thanks to the hard work of our foundation governor, Mel Holyoak. Mel has led this on behalf of The Three Hares and the scheme is being piloted within our three schools in the first instance. We will roll out the fundraising strategy to local businesses and the wider community in the new year. If successful, the DMAT hope to roll out something similar, across the other 14 schools in due course.
In the meantime we hope that South Tawton and North Tawton's fundraising programme will also launch in the near future.
Of course the Amazon Wish List is already live at Chagford and North and South Tawton's will be live soon. All lists are being populated by staff and updated as purchases are being made. Thank you to all the people who have already helped the schools by making a purchase - it is wonderful to see boxes of 'goodies' arrive in the office!
