Here are the highlights from Tipton St John C of E Primary School during their 2019/2020 Torbay and Devon Civic Award
The school are immensely proud of the work and dedication they have shown.
Around the school we have been involved in play leading, helping the younger children read, cleaning the playground, helping with school dinners and sorting out the library.
We have cleaned many beaches, held cake sales, collected clothes and food and, despite lockdown, discovered many aspiring chefs, environmentalists, gardeners, looked after animals and also raised money for the following charities and organisations:
- Help for Heroes
- The Homeless Trust
- Children in Need
- Rubalo Carnival Club
- Bay Court Residential Nursing Home
- TSJ PTFA, The Scout Group
- Sidmouth Rugby Club
- The Wave Foundation
- Otter Tots
Throughout the year we have tried many new things including: photography, metal detecting, arrow tag, football, hockey, violin lessons, creative art, baking, rugby and whittling.
The children really enjoyed the awards and learnt many things about themselves, they are sad that they did not get time to complete everything and would like to have helped more people. They have recognised how important it is to help both your local and the wider community.
