Close to the end of term, Dean Close was delighted to host a dinner to celebrate Community Action work and say thank you to those who have been associated.  The School invited representatives from the charities and organisations that have placed Sixth Formers, on a regular basis or for a Field Day,  in voluntary positions over the last year.   These included Goals beyond Grass, Pied Piper Appeal, St Mark’s Church, Morris Court, Family Space and the Headmaster of Belmont School alongside our Sixth Form.  After dinner, Head of Community Action, Julie Kent, spoke about the importance of supporting both the community close to us, in Gloucestershire, and those far away in our link school in Uganda.  She praised the Sixth Formers who have attended elderly residential homes and special schools on a weekly basis and talked about the charities the School supports, emphasising that giving up time for others is as important as raising money.  It was a very special event that was appreciated by all.
