We did it

The funds would be used to buy new playground equipment for the children as part of an initiative to help them reintegrate as a community

Help us get our Community moving again!

The children and staff of Falcon Junior School have had a difficult couple of years!

In 2019, the school was flooded, meaning that Years 3, 4 and 5 were relocated long-term to another local school, while Year 6 remained on site. The staff and children found the disruption really challenging, but our school values of positivity and resilience kept us going together.

In 2020, COVID struck, meaning that our school community was fractured even further! We came together online, but it meant that the children weren't getting outside or active like they would be at school. When the school reopened, our large size meant that year groups weren't allowed to mix and the class bubble system had to remain in place much longer than at smaller schools.

The kids missed each other and looked forward to being outside, the only place they could see their friends from other bubbles. Our playground isn't of the quality that our kids deserve.  Our council funding is currently directed to the massive works needed to rebuild the school and the children are learning in modular buildings until the construction is complete. We want to give the children brand new equipment as part of an initiative to get them to enjoy being active and outdoors again.

COVID has significantly affected our children's fitness and enthusiasm. We want to give that back and see some bigger smiles in our school.
