Every time a child does something that is beyond our school expectations they receive 1 shiny sticker. So we are very pleased to say April has received 15 shiny stickers in class. We are very proud of April's behaviour, attitude and the extra effort she puts in to doing her best at school.
Well done April you are an exemplary student and we are very proud of you.

Pupil cuts her locks for The Princess Trust
Our year 2 pupil, Kacey 6, made a very brave and generous donation to the Little Princess Trust by having her golden tresses cut off. We are very proud of you Kacey for raising £150 for The Little Princess Trust who provide real hair wigs, free of charge, for children across the UK and Ireland who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

Friday's Kidz Fit
A new year, new routines. The children at Scargill Infant School, Mungo Park Road, Rainham had an exciting and energetic day. Along with their teachers they learnt how exercise makes their heart beat faster and what food they need to eat more of to stay fit and healthy. Carl McKnight from Kidz Fit said “I had a great day once again at Scargill Infants! All the children were amazing and I could tell they have been practising. Keep up the good work.” The children were surprised at how so many things they do is classed as exercise like, running, jumping, swimming, riding bikes. All year groups took part throughout the day taking turns to demonstrate their fitness.
Miss McGahey, Head of School said “It’s very important to learn at a young age how to keep yourself healthy through physical activities and eating healthily. Carl does this in a fun and enjoyable way enabling the children to retain their newly learned skills.”
