Sunday 14th November was World diabetes day. We celebrated the day on Friday by asking the children to come dressed in non uniform but in as much blue as possible.
We have 2 children in school who are diabetic and we are hoping to raise money for Snack Pack, which is a support group in Exeter.
We raised a massive £140.89 for snack pack.
The children at Heathcoat Primary School have been learning all about the history of Remembrance Day this week. There have been several assemblies about Remembrance, and different year groups have produced some beautiful artwork linked to the poppy. At 11am on 11.11 the children and staff held a 2 minute silence to remember the fallen and give thanks to the serving military, with the Last Post being played by Mrs Bard.
