A huge thank you to @profbrucehood for yesterday's engaging #STEM talk on 'The Science of Happiness' and for sharing his #HappinessHacks with us. Delighted to have welcomed pupils from other local schools to enjoy Prof Hood's talk. #BGSLearning #BGSSTEM #BeyondtheClassroom https://t.co/omGyngNuQP
At the end of last week, one of our Reception parents organised a charity coffee morning to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. They were inspired to help after the nephew of BGS Infant teacher Mr Preddy was born with this condition last year.
Well done to our Reception children who sang a lovely song at the coffee morning, and managed to keep the event a complete surprise for Mr Preddy. Thanks to the very many parents who turned up for tea and coffee, the event raised more than £400 and Mr Preddy was incredibly grateful for the support saying:
"Charlie is six months old now and is already reaping the benefits of research into Cystic Fibrosis that allowed his early diagnosis at three weeks old and swift medical intervention to ensure he stays fit and healthy. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust fund this vital research and the money raised from today's coffee morning will make a real difference – thank you!"
