Community Spirit Alive

When the Chessington Scout Group contacted us earlier in the year to say their headquarters had flooded, we were very happy to let them use our sports hall and playing field for their sessions until they could move back home.

The Scout group were very appreciative of this gesture and wanted to return the favour by helping us tidy and clear our Nut Walk outdoor learning environment.

Mr Walsh said “Nut Walk is a fantastic learning environment which our students love but it does require regular maintenance to ensure it remains accessible for learning.  We are very thankful to the team for their hard work and I can’t believe how quickly they filled the skip.”

The Chessington Scout Group are led by Emma Gregory and were also supported on the day by a number of volunteers.  A big thank you must also go to Garcia Joinery and Ginkgo Gardens who provided tools and equipment as well as some specialist knowledge.

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
