This year we took part in Mental Health Awareness Day. To raise awareness of mental health issues everybody came to school wearing something yellow and made a £1 donation to Young Minds the children’s mental health charity.
Children will be took part in Mental Health workshops and invited parents to come and share their learning at the end of the afternoon.

Our Autumn Assembly took place this week and parents were invited to come and join the children singing autumn songs and watch an autumn themed performance.
We also collected tinned, dried or packet foods, toiletries and even loos rolls, nappies and washing up liquid for the Thornbury Food Bank.
Every Friday afternoon children who go ‘over and above’ every day that week are chosen to have a chat and share a cup of hot chocolate in the Head’s office. It’s a lovely end to the week and a great way for Mrs Carter to get to know everybody.
We said farewell to Mrs Cave today who is retiring after almost 23 years working at Gillingstool. We wish her well in her retirement and hope that she will come and see us on a regular basis.
