Children with Initiative!
It is lovely when the children show initiative!
I received a very polite, typed letter from 'the class 2 and 3 football boys' asking if they could have some new goal posts. The old ones, whilst still standing, are becoming a little rickety and are very much on their last legs. Not only was the request polite, but they had also thought through the way to Mrs Davis' heart and there were plenty of reasons why new goal posts would be of benefit to the whole school, including that the older children would be able to use new goals to help teach the younger ones how to play football. Not only that but they will be able to develop some of our school values by showing each other respect and helping each other.
With such a persuasive letter, I could not refuse! The children were given a reply, a budget, a catalogue and an order form. With a little support from Miss Lynch they selected their chosen posts, and we are awaiting their arrival; hopefully in time for the FOEGS Taskforce to put them together.
