Local Community

In this section we will be sharing the fantastic initiatives our children are involved in to support residents within our local community of Maidstone.

TERM 4, 2024

You will have seen in previous school bulletins that we are taking part in the Maidstone Shaun the Sheep fundraiser this year. 

In school, Mr Haslam ran a competition for the children to design Shaun. He took the best bits of the designs and worked with some of our talented artists to paint Shaun. Shaun has now been delivered and we look forward to seeing him at a surprise location in Maidstone over the summer.

As a school, we will be undertaking some fundraising events to support the Heart of Kent Hospice, Shaun the Sheep event.  To get us off to a flying start, we have set up a Just Giving page. If you, or a family member or friend,  would like to donate towards this cause, please click on the Just Giving link below.

The first literary festival in Maidstone will take place from 2-8 October this year. 

As well as lots of school visits planned for the weekdays, there are many events for children taking place over the weekend, both free and ticketed. The festival organisers have been lucky enough to secure the presence of A F Steadman (Skandar series) and Lucy Strange, to name just a couple of brilliant children’s authors, and their events, amongst many others, are available to book now.

Description automatically generatedThank you to everyone who came to our Mud Run on Saturday. It was an amazing event, and everyone enjoyed getting muddy.  The bubble slide at the end was a big hit and children loved running (some sitting) in the gooey muddy pools. It was lovely to see children of all ages joining in as well as adults and especially nice to see past pupils come and join in the fun with their siblings. We would like to say a big thank you to SSgt Longden and his team of soldiers from the 36th Engineer Regiment, for helping us set up and making it a great event for our community and of course our PTA members.

Marcel helps clean up!

On Sunday, 5th March, Marcel with his sister Gabriela decided to clean the area near the school. They picked up all the rubbish from Vinters Road and the car park near the top gate. 
They managed to pick up two full black bags of rubbish.

Eco-Council go litter picking in their break

Eco-Councillors

Some of our Eco Council members were out litter picking again this week. Their efforts were focused on the alley way on the approach to the bottom gate in school, as well as the path that runs alongside the local secondary schools. Again, a full sack of rubbish was collected, as well as a discarded CD player!

To celebrate Burns Night, the children in EYFS had a local group of Scottish Dancers visit them. They were able to watch some traditional Scottish dances be performed, and were then able to try out some of the dances for themselves under the instruction of the dancers. The children had great fun, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being able to learn some traditional dances which they then replicated in their own play.

We would like to say a huge thank you to the Maidstone Lions Charity who have donated a second defibrillator to our school. This is great news, as we can now be reassured that there is one in each building! It was presented, in assembly, to Destiny who represented the school brilliantly in her role as House Captain.

East Borough have formed a partnership with the Stones Community Trust (charity branch of Maidstone United). SCT ran a half term club, free of charge for a number of our pupils. The children enjoyed a range of sports and arts and crafts activities. Everyone had a great time and we hope to do it again in the summer.

On Thursday 13th October, we celebrated Harvest together! We learnt about the meaning of Harvest through a lovely poem performed by Year 3. Year 2, spoke about Sukkot which is the Jewish festival that links to Harvest. They shared about the importance of a Sukkah (shelter) and the four different types. Year 6 shared some reading and we all sang a Harvest song! Thank you for all your kind donations to the Salvation Army - we were overwhelmed with your generosity!

Our House Captains met Arthur, from the Salvation Army, who was delighted to receive our Food Mountain. Arthur was particularly pleased to visit East Borough because he came here when it was a Secondary School!

Your very generous donations will help over 100 Maidstone families in need. Thank you.

Beth and Alex enjoyed their litter picking session this weekend. The cousins are both so proud that their route from home to school is now much cleaner.

Term 3: Nearly New Sale

On Saturday 29 January, the school opened its doors to the local community for a Nearly New Sale.  East Borough teamed up with Save the Children to sell clothes, toys and books at bargain prices to raise money for good causes. A huge thanks to the team of staff, parents and Save the Children helpers who sorted all the donations and sold the goods on the day.
