As you may well know, our school has a partnership with Evergreen Blossom Academy in Ghana.
The link has existed for nearly 4 years and some of our staff have visited the school to work with the children and staff.
Our current Y6 children have sent letters and pictures to pen pals at Evergreen over the past two years. We also send 5% of the money raised by the Friends of Farnborough Road to our friends at Evergreen.
In the summer, children from Mr Spall’s class raised over £750 for Evergreen as a ‘goodbye’ present to FRJS. We sent the money to Francis, the Headteacher, over the summer and has used it to build a complete toilet block for his school!
He sent a message to our school last week:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for the role your school played for us to get the money to renovate the school toilet facility. I want also to say a very big thank you to the year group who raised the money and to all who in one way or the other contributed for the project.
This is the finished work of the facility. I was able to do the ceiling, doors, front roof, wash hand basins, urinals, cementing work, and the painting works, as well as the labourer cost, and the transportation.
Once again I am very grateful and really appreciate you and the entire school staff and the students.
