George Parsons was the much loved school pupil from Newfield School who suddenly passed away in his sleep on Christmas day eve, 2015. He is greatly missed by the whole school community and we wish to have something in the school where we can honour his memory.  We are a group of children raising funds and planning the design as well as finding someone who can make our design.

A memorial bench, designed by Newfield Students, is going to be built and placed on school grounds where George used to sit with his friends at lunch almost everyday. George was much loved by everyone at Newfield and this bench will be made in his memory for people to feel closer to him during school. The main design will have his music composition incorporated into the notes on the front of the footboard, and there will be an engraving of words somewhere on the bench.

The school have raised some money already and we hope that people can kindly donate so that we have enough money to complete the bench before his year group leave school.  Our aim is to have this completed before Summer 2017 and so we need to raise funds in order to have the design made into a reality.
