Sticklepath and Belstone School Charity - Grant Applications
Applications for financial support are invited from young people, aged under 25 years, who live in the parishes of Belstone and Sticklepath.
The objective of the Charity is "To promote the education (including social and physical training) of persons who are under the age of 25". Eligible people, or organisations, can apply to the Charity for a grant to help with the expenses of items which meet the objectives of the Charity. Grants have previously been approved for music lessons and sport/dance training fees, but the Charity will consider all appropriate areas of educational expenditure.
Applications can be made by such residents regardless of their, or their family's, financial circumstances.
Applications must be made by 31 March 2019 by way of an application form which can be obtained from the Clerk. Please contact Lois Rowlands on 01837 840367 or email loisneil98@john- lewis.com to request a form or for further information. The application should be made by the applicant themselves, rather than their parents, where this is appropriate, and should be for future costs to be incurred.

In our survey, some of you suggested that it might be good to have a day of different activities where pupils can do something different to the maths and English. There is no expectation that you have to stick to the daily maths and English lessons; we really want the home learning experience to be positive for families. I have gathered some new resources which I have been sent and have collated them below for you to try at home:
Chicken wire sculptures
Free learning resources from UK zoos

The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra invited school children to create rainbows to accompany their video arrangement of Over the Rainbow which is dedicated to the NHS. Tegan (Year 6) created a beautiful rainbow and submitted it to be considered. They must have loved it, as her rainbow was one of those chosen!
