Today we welcomed Mr Nevett in our Friday assembly. Mrs MacLauchlan showed everyone some photographs she had been sent from the children we sponsor in India who had received their Christmas gifts and one of our school calendars. Mrs MacLauchlan explained that the children we sponsor are in the south of India and we also help to support a school that is in the North.
Mr Nevett told us how the school is in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains (near to Mount Everest) and that the children who attend that school haven't got any of the lovely things that we have at Westfield Infant School. The children help to support their families by breaking big rocks into small rocks to make roads. Our support should help the children to have an education.
The School Council presented Mr Nevett with £500.00 that we raised from our Christmas plays.
Thank you to all the pupils at Westfield Infant School for working so hard on the Christmas plays and to all the parents/carers who have supported them.
