Kings Meadow School Council proudly supported a group of children who raised awareness about the disease SEPSIS. We had an amazing response to the challenges to collect as much money as possible over a week. Well done to everyone who took part.
Children at Kings Meadow supported the fund raising for our SEPSIS appeal by buying cakes from the whole school cake sale. Here we can see some of the children enjoying a tasty treat.
Kings Meadow has been raising money for the charity, 'Go Orange for a day' in support of the charity for Muscular Dystrophy.

'Helping Hands' SLP Community Project
Kings Meadow Primary School are taking part in an exciting ongoing project called 'Helping Hands' which supports the Senior Citizens in our community. On Thursday 24th March members of our School Council attended an Easter Lunch at Ainsdale Methodist Community Centre. Our school made Easter cards and baked cakes which were distributed during the luncheon. They were very much appreciated by all the attending senior citizens. Other schools taking part in our project cluster group were Birkdale Boys Jazz band, Ainsdale St John's dancers and Shoreside and Kew Woods Bonnet Parade.
Kings Meadow School took part in a project to support our local Foodbank. Along with other schools we had a Mufti day on Friday 12th February 2016 with the theme of 'Love my Community 'where we collected contributions of food and also accepted donations of money. As you can see from the photographs, your generation to this worthwhile cause has been exceptional. Many thanks on behalf of the School Council to everyone who supported us on a very successful day.
On Monday 15th June pupils from Kings Meadow Primary school spent an enjoyable time at Ainsdale Methodist Community Centre. During luncheon club the children entertained a group of senior citizens with some lovely singing and then gave out collaged cards and some delicious homemade peppermint creams and coconut-ice sweets.
