Haddenham Community Infant School is looking for some help from the local community.

The school is desperately looking for people to help run its Footsteps training. Footsteps is a School Travel Plan initiative that teaches children how to stay safe on the roads. All adults would would recognise that this is a vital life skill for our children and the infant school has always run this activity in school. However, they need help to run this as the Footsteps programme requires Footsteps trained parents to take out small groups of children around Haddenham.

To lead this programme you would need half-a-day's training. The next date for this training is on Wednesday 7th May, in Aylesbury. If you are interested in helping with this programme then please let the school administrator, Mrs Alleyne, know (Tel: 01844 291207).

The infant school's Eco Council is also in need of some parents to help drive Eco initiatives in school. In the past the school has always had several parents on this committee and the staff really appreciated their expertise. The Eco Council meets once a term and look at developments in the school for the pupils.

If you are interested in green issues and could help the school in this area, please pop in and chat to Miss Gray or Mrs McNeil to find out more information.

Finally, Mr Silvey has begun tidying up the infant school's outside area after the long, wet winter. He is busily repairing fencing and gates and needs small amounts of colourful gloss paint to add the finishing touches. If you have any old pots lurking in a shed or garage that you no longer require then please could you drop them in to school? Many thanks.
