Class 6 children were surprised this term by the presentation of a new school uniform for each child, bought with a donation from a DGS sponsor, Debi. (Debi also sponsors Grace, one of the Y6 pupils)
Debi said, “Children being the same as their peers creates confidence and equality, which is so very important for them all .”
Debi donated an amount which was enough to provide each child with a full school uniform i.e. a dress and socks for girls and a shirt, a pair of shorts and socks for boys. Staff at DGS spent several weeks making sure each child would receive a uniform that fitted properly. The new clothes were presented on 7th March which was Grace’s Birthday. The children were very excited when they received the new uniforms. Those who had no uniform, or tattered, worn out uniform, are now able to wear their new clothes with pride.
Grace’s birthday party was a great celebration for the whole class. They all wished one another well as they loked forward to another great year ahead. They enjoyed some fruit juice, a large cake and biscuits.
Many thanks to Debi for her generous gift.
