26. March 2020 · Comments Off on Congratulations to Ava – Writing Award · Categories: Steiner education

It’s always wonderful to hear from past pupils…. and we wanted to share with our school community some good news.

Ava was at Iona for just a year, completing Class 5 (our equivalent to Year 6) before venturing off to Senior School last September.

She has recently won THE SCOTTISH BOOK TRUST’S YOUNG WRITERS (5-11) AWARD. She is delighted to have won more books to read!

You can read her entry here: https://www.scottishbooktrust.com/50-…/february-2020-winners

Ava’s parents said she wouldn’t have found the confidence without Mrs Woolley giving her such encouragement to believe in herself and to find a space to be creative once again.

Well done Ava, we’re all really proud of you!!

Dear all

As many of you know, every year Iona School supports the local charity, Basket Brigade Nottingham.  It is a 100% volunteer run project delivering had select gifts and luxury goodies to people nominated by their community for a bit of extra love at the Festive Season.

As ever, some very moving nominations have been made; young carers, caring for one and sometimes two disabled or poorly parents and women fleeing from domestic violence.  Getting a wonderful hamper to let them know they are not alone can be the difference between despair and hope.

FIND OUR MORE HERE: http://www.basketbrigadenottingham.co.uk/

You can help!

***We need people for 1 hr TODAY after school to set up tables in the Hall and carry the stuff out of cars and in…

Come on the day!

Or donate a gift for a child or adult – wrapped is ideal – with a removable label saying the age and type of present it is to make sure we deliver it to the right person!

You can drop presents off tomorrow in the Hall.

Children are welcome – It’s a highlight for many and a wonderful way the children see that the “giving” side of the Festive Season is also great fun!! (They remain your responsibility at all times of course!)

Thank you in advance on behalf of the thrilled faces at the door when their delivery arrives!

Best wishes

Laila Risdon

The Basket Brigade Team
