It was brilliant to present medals from the Cross Country competition. After all the numbers from all the races were in we found that Max Hutchings was overall champ for the Year Five and Six competition and Seth Davies was number one in the Year Three and Four competition. Not only that but Joe Thorn got himself a bronze medal as overall number three in the Year Five and Six contest.
As a school we placed fifth in the Three and Four contest and third in the Five and Six contest.
Good work everyone.
The Chagford Pantry food banks, located in the church and in the school foyer, are proving very necessary and are very well used. We owe a debt of grsatitude to the team who are organising and maintaining them. Remember, the Pantry is there for whoever needs it - you don't need to be signposted or referred and you don't need to be on benefits. Check out what's there and don't be shy to use the service.
At times in the week stock runs low so the team have decided to run a 'Full Pantry' at the church every Monday from 10:00 till 12:00 O'clock. There will be a fuller range of goods there at that time - including essentials - there will be membrs of the team to talk to and tea and coffee will be available. If times are hard, that would be a grewat time to go along and make sure you're stocked up for the week.
The PTFA and the staff team worked together to run a party fit for a king this afternoon.
With the weather being unhelpful, Foundation unit and Key Stage One got together to have thier party in thier Foundation Unit while Key Stage Two and our friends form the Memory Cafe set up a street party in the hall.
Thanks to the generosity of the PTFA, every child had made a crown to wear and they all came dressed in red, white and blue.
We were joined by friends from the Memory Cafe making it a real community celebration.
As you would expect from Chagford parents - the cake baking game was on point.
There were songs and games and a good time was had by all.
Each child has taken home a keepsake of the Coronation and, we hope, that as they grow older they will remember this historic occasion - this is the first coronation in over seventy years after all. Like many people of my generation, I have very strong and happy memories of the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977, it would be nice to think that our wonderful Chagford Champions will have similarly happy memories of King Charles' Coronation.
