Wansbeck Valley Foodbank Donations

20161020_091205This Harvest, we set up a Food Drop Off Point to collect items in support of the Wansbeck Valley Food Bank. Wansbeck Valley Food Bank is a local charity set up to help prevent and relieve poverty or financial hardship by providing food parcels from donations they receive.

The excellent work of the food bank can only continue with the generous support of local people and businesses, so we would like to say a huge thank you to all the pupils and staff who donated non-perishable food items. Sean and Linda from Wansbeck Valley Food Bank came to collect the items this morning and were so impressed by the large quantity of items Chantry Middle School had collected.

The school is in Nonant-le-Pin, a small village in the north-west of France and our pupils are making first contact with their new French pen friends.

Other theatre goers commented how well the Chantry students behaved throughout the performance and how they were a credit to the school.

¡Hola! Guten Tag!

mex (Small)Opening evening this year in the languages department had a new flavour to it.  Our young Germanists and Hispanophones offered up a tasty selection of continental treats to anyone who passed through our doors.  However, there was a catch involved – they had to have a conversation in German or Spanish first!

“I am really enjoying learning Spanish in Year 7 as it is a completely new language for me.  I spoke to so many children and adults on the night – all in Spanish!  I loved trying out the foods myself too.”  Ebony, Y7
