Children in Need - Bring and Buy sale

What a successful event! Here at Porters Grange, everyone did their bit for charity and raised lots of money for Children in Need. This worthwhile cause helps millions of children from around the world and we were very proud to join in. The School Council and children from across the school discussed many interesting and exciting ideas on how to raise money. Ultimately the children decided they wanted to organise a ‘bring and buy’ sale. Selling on unwanted toys, games and books is a good way to recycle and reduce waste – things we feel very strongly about at Porters Grange. Due to the dedication and hard work of the School Council members and the generosity of parents and staff, we raised a

Year 6 visit the cinema

Year Six were lucky enough to receive free cinema tickets through the ‘Into Film Festival’, a nationwide event that celebrates film and education for 5-19 year olds. The film screened was ‘Sherlock Gnomes’, a hilarious romp through London in which the titular character (voiced by Johnny Depp) helped foil the crimes of his rival Moriarty, as well as saving the gnomes of London.

While no trophies were being contested, each team on display wanted to show their best, leading to a day packed full of exhilarating action. The Porters Grange team were in high spirits, with many of the team playing in their second or third competition. The first game saw Porters playing against Fairways C team. It was a back and forth game, with Porters blitzing out of the gates early to sweep into a 3-2 half time lead. Tries coming from Oskar, and a brace from Roland. Tensions were high in the second half, and after a din

Remembrance at Porters Grange

To mark the one hundred year anniversary of the end of World War 1, all of the children learnt about the war and the importance of remembering everyone who has ever served for our great democratic country. As part of the commemorations, every child in the school made a poppy for a school display. The poppies have now all come together to make Porters Grange's very own Poppy Wave. The display is draped over the staircase to our lovely library and it looks absolutely stunning. We are very proud of everyone's creations! On Friday 9th November, members of the School Council attended special Remembrance ceremonies at Hamstel Infant School and Hamstel Junior School. The ceremonies were very poig
