On Friday 15th September, West Lodge children were invited to dress up as a Roald Dahl character to celebrate the life and books of Roald Dahl as well as raise money for Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity. Unsurprisingly, the West Lodge children and staff did not disappoint.
It was fantastic to see all of the wonderfully different characters represented throughout the school with Willy Wonka, Matilda, Mr Fox and the BFG proving to be popular. The photographs demonstrate the considerable effort put into this by both parents and children, so well done and thank you to all.
Every class were keen to take part in some Dahlicious activities and the work produced as a result was of a high quality, as the displays around school will demonstrate. West Lodge managed to raise over £160, which will be spent by Dahl’s charity to support children less fortunate than ourselves. Well done!
We will leave you with a poignant Dahl quote shared in this morning’s assembly that is appropriate of the care and support children have demonstrated in these first few weeks of term:
“I think probably kindness is my number one attribute in a human being. I’ll put it before any of the things like courage, or bravery, or generosity, or anything else.”
