A huge thank you to the organisers and volunteers who made our Summer Fete such a wonderful event. Over £5,000 was raised !
The children in Reception at Rushey Green were lucky enough to be one of the very few schools chosen in Lewisham to have received Balance Bike Training supplied by the company ‘Feet 2 Feet’ . The children had fun learning new skills and improving their health and fitness.
The children in Reception have visited ‘Moon Lane books’ to have a story telling session. We had books read to us about Transport which the children really enjoyed. We will definitely be visiting them again!
The Choir were fantastic at Lewisham Live Performance last Tuesday – They were commended for singing a song with no backing track which was a difficult thing to do but they pulled it off perfectly and made Rushey Green proud.
On the 1st of February both the children and parents learnt about AFRIL. Action for Refgugees in Lewisham. Thomas Martin from the organisation presented information about the experience of these families, and how AFRIL supports both adults and children, particularly those who speak English as a second language. He highlighted how as a community we can support each other and challenge negative stereotypes of refugee and asylum seekers. The children raised £348 through wearing their own clothes and donating £1. This money will help AFRIL support our local families who access their service. Well done Rushey Green!.
