3rd July 2023
It was a special music week in school last week, with a series of fun interactive and sensory workshops taking place. First was an immersive workshop by experts from Take Art and Devon & Torbay Music Education Hub, organised in collaboration with the annual Budleigh Music Festival.
A big well done to EP in Grace’s class for his brilliant talking at home and at school. Wonderful progress!
A big well done to RP in Andrew’s class for using his talker to spot signs in the community.
Colourful new books donated by the Budleigh Salterton Lions Club are proving popular with pupils! Lions Richard Allen and Lorraine Ralph presented the set of Wild Tribe Heroes books to our pupil librarians and our literacy assistant Charlotte. The books are fantastic and fit in perfectly with the learning that our pupils do about the environment.

Mill Water’s Fundraiser: The Bicton 10K!
Thank you for all the treats donated for the PTFA’s cake sale. This raised £160 at the Bicton Balmy 10k event, which the school helped host on Sunday. More than £1,000 was raised from the day for pupils, through sponsorship and donations. Event organiser LMEvents chose Mill Water as their event charity, with a percentage of participants’ entry fees going to the school. A team of staff also went the extra mile and ran the hilly course, in respectable times, in aid of our pupils. You can support them via their Justgiving page.
