Childwall Abbey School “Read, Rest and Play” project has been chosen by Tesco to compete for a Bags of Help grant. We are asking all our parents, carers, extended families and friends to help us.

We urgently need all the votes we can get so that we can provide a sheltered reading area and story chair, outdoor gym equipment and some hidden seating to provide an engaging and tranquil social setting for our pupils who all have complex special needs including Autism.

You can vote at these TESCO stores  every time you shop.
Ask the cashier for a token, you don’t have to buy a bag!

Comic Relief March 2017

Thank youMany thanks go out to everyone who helped Childwall Abbey School to raise £180 for the wonderful causes supported by Comic Relief. All the pupils and staff enjoyed our Own Clothes Day, with everyone looking smart and many people wearing red. The red noses were sold out before registration and our Sixth-form did us proud, organising a cake sale at break time. As always, the community of Childwall Abbey came together to do their best for those in need.

Well done everyone!

To raise money for this great cause, Childwall Abbey School will be having an Own Clothes Day, for a donation of £1 per pupil please. It would be fun if pupils could wear something red but they don’t have to. (Please don’t buy anything specially!) There will be a cake sale at break time too, 20p per cake. Mrs Deegan has been sent a box of Red Noses, which will also be on sale. Numbers are limited and the price is £1 per nose.

Thank you for your support

Valentine’s Day Macmillan Fundraising 2017

Valentines day image

Congratulations to our Sixth-form students, for planning and running a very successful Valentine’s Day Cake Sale in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The sale was announced at a thought provoking whole school assembly on Monday 13th February, with a PowerPoint put together by the Sixth-form students themselves. This explained what an important organisation Macmillan is and the wonderful support they provide to people in the most challenging circumstances.

All classes were invited to bring in a little money on 14th February and to come along to the Sixth-form Base, where a fantastic array of delicious cakes and biscuits had been set out to be purchased. There was also a fun competition to “Guess the Dots” on a cake. The winner was Richard, one of our wonderful volunteer helpers.

Everyone had fun, the cakes were delicious and we raised £84.00 for Macmillan.

Thank you image

Children’s Mental Health Week 2017

Random acts of kindness imageChildren’s Mental Health Week takes place this year between 7th and 12th February. We know that mental health issues can be just as challenging and distressing as any other form of illness. Anyone of us could be affected by mental health issues, therefore it is vital that we, as a community, learn how best to build resilience in ourselves and to support it in others.

The theme of the week this year is KINDNESS. At Childwall Abbey School, all pupils and staff will be taking time in whole school assemblies and in form groups, to think about and identify opportunities for acts of kindness which will make ourselves and others feel strong and valued.

We will be sending home some Tips for Parents, so that you can be involved in supporting this important initiative. For further information, look on the Place2Be website.
