David Walliams gets in touch!

NB forwarded a powerpoint presentation of illustrations and writing compiled by AR, a pupil from our Boston base for David Walliams and asked him if he would comment on these. In reply she received a letter and a signed photo.  An invitation for David to visit our school was also made and indications are that he is aware of it and has shown an interest in the future if possible.

Message from the head teacher:

I didn’t ever expect to be attending a Buckingham Palace garden party and feel honoured and privileged to have done so. On reflecting on this it demonstrates how Pilgrim continues to develop as an outward looking school – the D of E programme is just one example.

Our nice new MPV delivered today.

We have taken deliver y of our first ever Pilgrim Minibus.  It looks rather smart and will expand our opportunities to transport our pupils for additional enrichment opportunites and D of E excursions etc.

Celebrating Success

Following last week’s article about Duke of Edinburgh, We are pleased to share the news that DA and SB have been invited to Buckingham Palace as part of the Dof E celebrations in May.

On 22nd March staff and pupils at the Sleaford base walked a mile for Sports relief. They also held a cake sale at break and participated in a mile of pennies (needless to say it wasn’t quite a mile!!). Total raised came to £67.50. Many thanks to JD for organising this and to those staff who baked cakes to sell.

 The career’s fair held in Lincoln on Monday 19th March was a big success. The workshops on CV writing and interview techniques etc were particularly well received by our pupils.

Celebrating Success - D of E Update

On Wednesday 7th March we had the official ceremony that declared us an official centre for the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Mick Hoare who is the East Midlands Operations Officer for Dof E came to the Sleaford base and met with some of the pupils who have embarked on bronze so far and then presented the framed certificate. We were pleased to have governors in attendance in this occasion too.
