P7 pupils will lead tours around the school at:

Over the past few years the school has been successful in getting grants for various projects from the Aviva community fund – we have had 4 different grants in total worth £4000 awarded over 3 years for iPads, playground markings, playground stage and some new playground equipment (still to be purchased following the building work). The Parent Council and Friends of Stockbridge School are applying for a grant of £1000 each this year with one to fund new iPads and the other for STEM equipment.
WE NEED YOU TO VOTE TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN GETTING THE FUNDING!!!
Voting is easy, and takes only 2 minutes, or even less if you’ve previously voted and have an Aviva login. The links to the 2 different projects for voting are below, or within the Aviva Community fund site if you search for ‘Stockbridge’ you will find the 2 projects.
STEM for Stockbridge – https://www.avivacommunityfund.co.uk/voting/project/view/4-2518
Stockbridge digital skills for life: New ipads – https://www.avivacommunityfund.co.uk/voting/project/view/4-2684
Based on past experience we need over 100 people to vote (equivalent to 1000 votes) for each project to be successful so we need as many people as possible to vote, and all your friends and relatives can vote as well. Please help us by sharing the links to family and friends to help us secure this funding.
We will send out further reminders before voting closes in about 4 weeks and will also hand out flyers to remind people.
Your help and co-operation is much appreciated 🙂
