Double Boost For Clare Mount Families Thanks to Generosity and Ingenuity!
Over the course of the last week, families of students from Clare Mount Specialist Sports College have received a welcome boost, in a period of uncertainty, thanks to the innovation, compassion and generosity of the school staff and some amazing partner organisations.
Thanks to a funding bid, written by Mr. White, the Morgan Foundation awarded the school over £1800 to purchase sensory activity equipment to be used at home. Many of our students take part in sensory circuits when in school. These activities help to set children up for a school day and reach the level of alertness and/or calmness needed to concentrate. It is hoped that by providing some of this equipment to our students it will help with their home learning while the 'lock-down' continues.
Mr. Vasey and Mr. Atkins delivered the first consignment of equipment to our families on Wednesday 13th May.
Meanwhile, since late March a number of our families have been receiving food support thanks to Mr. Scott and his association with The Heswall Round Table charitable organisation. Over the course of the last fortnight, Clare Mount staff,, via a Just-Giving page set up by Mrs Badzire, have raised over £900 in order to extend this support to more than 40 of our families; and we are hoping that this number will increase over the next fortnight.
This has been a fantastic effort by a remarkable team of people. Thank you, on behalf of our entire community, to everyone who has contributed.
