Thamesmead schools celebrate community projects
PUBLISHED: 14:07 18 July 2012
Four Thamesmead primary schools have shown off the projects they have completed thanks to a grant from Trust Thamesmead.
Hawksmoor in Bentham Road, Heronsgate, Whinchat Road, Linton Mead, in Central Way, and Jubilee, Crowden Way, all received £250 from the community organisation at the start of the school year.
Heronsgate pupils put their cash towards putting together a poetry book and creating carnival costumes for their summer fair.
CJ Peter-Kine, seven, said: “I really enjoyed making costumes for our carnival. We used lots of fabric and peacock feathers. The carnival was a lot of fun.”
Hawksmoor invested their funding in creating a family room.
Parent Anne-Marie Goldspring said: “This will make for happier and content parents and children, which can only benefit the school and the community.”
Linton Mead created photography and cook books while Jubilee filmed a documentary about past, present and future Thamesmead.
