On the morning of 17th March, children from Monks Abbey, Bishop King, Westgate and Parish School in Gainsborough visited Dunholme St Chads Primary School. Children were exploring the learning environment, and were tasked with looking for ways in which themes were celebrated throughout the school. As ever, all the children were an absolute delight and represented their respective schools incredibly well. The hosts from Dunholme St Chads were polite, friendly, welcoming and understandably proud of their school. Many thanks to Dunholme for hosting us, and to Suzi Balasz for organising the morning so well.

KYRA Council is a unique collaboration of children from across the Teaching School Alliance, who work together and meet regularly to help improve and celebrate the rich variety of experiences in our schools.

The Council goes from strength to strength, so a huge thank you to all the schools who participate, sometimes travelling quite long distances. The next event is on 19th April at Toynton All Saints for an outdoor experience.
