Five Year 12 Bilton students volunteered to spend time at Bawnmore Community Infant School this week lending a hand with Science week. They have supported groups of students from Reception through to Year 2 with activities on bubbles, paper planes, parachutes, where our food comes from, and colour. All students have shown great independence and leadership skills and have been an asset to the school. Staff at Bawnmore were impressed with how mature and helpful the students have been. Well done!

#iwill expanded to another care home last week and what a success it was! Our volunteer students visited Drovers House Care Home in Rugby with Mr Crumbie and Miss Johnson and enjoyed an afternoon with residents and the care staff.
Our #iwill students spent an hour after school on Monday tidying up the garden with a local gardener; they were weeding, planting and building an insect house. They tried really hard and were enthusiastic about improving our school gardens. If you see them, it would be lovely if we could all say thank you for their hard work.
