A Random Act of Kindness For Our Special Community
Members of the Volunteer Program, Mrs Bagley, Mrs Millington-Jones, Mrs Jones and Ernie the dog all had a very special morning spreading our love and kindness around our community.
Residents near to the school were given little bunches of daffodils to say Happy Easter and a tag that thanked everyone for supporting us.
The children thoroughly enjoyed talking to local residents and delivering happiness to each door step.
Tupsley School Model Railway - 1931
Thank you to Mr Vincent, a pupil of St Paul's from 1954 - 1959. Mr Vincent has kindly given us his original copy of the 1931 edition of The Model Railway News. Photographed is a wonderful article written about the Tupsley School Model Railway.

Charity Bring and Buy Sale raises £393.22. Thank you everyone and especially the School Council.
School votes for Charities
The School council organised a vote to decide which local charities the children would like to support this year. Groups spoke well in assembly, to explain why people should vote for a charity which is important to them. St Michael's Hospice, Many Tears (an animal charity) and Cancer Research were chosen. A giant Bring and Buy Sale will be organised before Christmas.
In our community, we already have some stars who are changing the world. Some of our pupils and staff have gone above and beyond to help support the local community and raise money for amazing causes.

Elizabeth raised over £1000 for The Courtyard!
In the middle of June, Elizabeth decided to raise money for The Courtyard. She asked friends and family to sponsor her to run 1 mile to school and back for 30 days!
Elizabeth described The Courtyard as “one of her favourite places” and said she wanted to raise money for it as she “misses it so much”.
Rebecca, Elizabeth’s very proud Mum, said:
“Elizabeth decided she wanted to run Wednesday and Thursday as that was our days on our own, as Flo, her little sister, was at nursery. After a day we had raised over £100, so she extended it to 30days! Elizabeth chose to run to school as it comforted her to know it was there even though she couldn’t go. Sometimes she caught a glimpse of a teacher who would wave. It really gave her focus and made a routine out of our day. The fundraising total was also great for her maths, working out how much she had gone up each day. It was wonderful to watch her get so excited that she herself had raised the money!”
Harry's 60 Walks for The British Heart Foundation!
Harry has decided to take on the mammoth task of completing 60 walks during Lockdown 3 to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.
'My dad works for the British Heart Foundation and I love walking. I've climbed a lot of mountains like Pen-y-Fan, Hay Bluff & Cats Back. So I decided to do 60 walks and I hope I can raise money to help people in need.'
Harry has so far raised over £720 for the cause - just fantastic! If you would also like to donate, please follow the link below.
Scarlet Raised £815 For The Little Princess Trust!
The Little Princess Trust provides free real hair wigs to children and young people, up to 24 years, who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions.
Recognising the importance of helping other children who are less fortunate than her, Scarlet made a brave decision to cut her long hair and asked her friends and family for support in raising money for the cause.
Scarlet chopped off a staggering 10.5 inches from her hair and raised £815 for the charity. What a star!
