Thank you!

A huge range of funders, parents, teachers, children and simply very kind people have contributed to the project to make our school grounds a better place for kids to be.  We’ve not finished yet – but it’s high time to give thanks to some of those not at the school who have helped significantly along the way.

If you spot that someone’s missing from this list who should be on it, please let us know asap!
