Community

Our aim is for children to leave The Epiphany School as well-rounded individuals who can contribute to society with success, confidence and a sense of what they can both aspire to and offer. Good links with our community are essential for achieving this. We are always looking to build on relationships with those around us in the local area.

We like to support our community and small businesses.

Like many schools we appreciate donations from parents, friends, charities and businesses to support and enrich the curriculum.

Below is a list of a few of our supporters to whom we are so grateful.

Community Spirit in Action, Well Done Alex!

 

During the month of July Alexander took up a challenge of running 1 kilometre a day. This was to raise money for Sophie Simmonds who is running the London marathon for Bournemouth and Poole hospital.

Alex raised a very impressive £440 in sponsorship money which he gave to Sophie to go towards the appeal. Sophie Simmonds is a parent at The Epiphany School and will be running the London Marathon this October to raise money for Bournemouth and Poole Hospitals. Funds raised will be put towards the purchase of 2 robotic tilt tables to help the early rehabilitation of patients, whilst being treated in intensive care.

David Wilson Homes - visit to Canford Paddocks

 

Pupils at The Epiphany School took a visit to Canford Paddock, Bear Wood for a Wildlife Workshop arranged by David Wilson Homes. The interactive session, designed to share the builder's commitment to protecting wildlife and to promote the importance of sustainability, was a great success. It was hosted by Jake, one of David Wilson’s landscapers.

Jake explained how David Wilson is building wildlife-friendly developments across the region and passed on handy tips, all while planting sunflowers with the schoolchildren. Each child was also given their very own branded goody bag, complete with watering can, trowel, planter tray and an individual pack of sunflower seeds, along with a colouring book from the RSPB.

Epiphany School Headteacher, Vanessa Webster, said it was a fantastic addition to her children’s learning and has inspired the creation of a large-scale bug hotel built in the school grounds including a curiosity corner with natural ‘treasures’ found by the children.

She said: “Being able to take a group on site for this one-off workshop, has been of great benefit to each and every one of our school children. They especially loved hearing about how they could help by encouraging wildlife into their own gardens.

“We always try to communicate the advantages of looking after our planet, especially with climate change being such an important subject at present, and these Workshops have been a great addition to the school’s curriculum. A huge thank you to David Wilson Homes and Jake.
