While Beaudesert physically closed on Friday, 20 March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Beaudesert community has been volunteering to help others during this difficult time.
During the last week of term, our Senior Art Club created postcards with messages of support for some of the residents of The Cotswold Home in Burford, where Art teacher Ms Dismorr’s mother works as a nurse. The cards were delivered and were met with delight by the residents.
As the School is now closed to most children and staff, we have donated our remaining hand sanitisers to the staff preparing the new Nightingale hospital in London, including one of our parents. We’re told they’ve already been put to good use.
Mrs Danks in our Nursery has been doing some baking for a friend who is working as a doctor in A&E. One of our Beaudesert families, the Hargitays, decided to help Mrs Danks and delivered a package of chocolate chip muffins and colourful thank you cards to her! We are so pleased to hear more families have been in touch and offered to help Mrs Danks with her baking.
Thanks to the generosity of our Year 8 families, Great Western Hospital’s Heart team now have nine extra top of the range virus protection masks to add to their supplies. The masks are reusable, can be use for 10 hours at a time and give the team protection during resuscitation.
Another Beaudesert family, the Lidstones have also been busy delivering vegetable boxes to their vulnerable neighbours. We’re told they are planning to help the whole village in the coming weeks!
William in Reception also spent the first week of the Easter holidays making rainbows pictures which he has left outside of his house for people to take. He wanted to make something that would make people smile if they felt lonely or sad.
