Asia class requested some new board games to play during their downtime. 

As you can see, they are being thoroughly enjoyed and are already being made good use of. 

The PTA was very happy to approve the request and as you can see by the pupil's faces, they are a huge hit. 

 

Enjoy!!

Gaming Club request a new Xbox

The Gaming Club was getting tired and bored of the same games so they requested some new equipment and an Xbox Live pass for new games!

 

This allows for the opportunity to play more cooperative games for the 10-12 players that attend on a weekly basis!

The children were thrilled when their request was granted!

The request was for "sensory toys for self-regulation, independent choosing, intensive interaction, and puzzles for fun!

The children have all enjoyed the new items, thanks to the PTA agreeing to fund the items.

Also, thank you to the class for the fantastic "thank you" painting we received.

New items for the Ten Tours Team

Robyn requested funding for the children to have new hoodies, polo shirts, and a flag just like the other schools participating in the event.  Mill Ford Friends were more than happy to agree to the funding, and just look how good they looked!

Robyn said, "The team looked amazing and certainly professional!

Thanks for the funding, it did make them feel smart and special".

Receiving a comment like that is exactly why we work so hard to raise funds for the children, and makes it all worthwhile!

Mill Ford Friends also received a request from Simon, requesting funding for new inner sleeping compartments for the tent.  Of course, we obliged and now going forward they have the basic equipment to continue their participation in the event.

A massive well done and we are all very proud of your achievement!
