Operation Christmas Child - 2017 Shoe Box Appeal

It's hard to believe that it's that time of year. Miss Phazey has once again organised the Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box Appeal - for the 15th year in a row! As ever, Castletown delivered lots and lots of shoe boxes, kindly filled with presents to give to those less fortunate than ourselves. We would like to send a huge thank you to everyone for their support. Your kindness will result in many children having an unforgettable Christmas.

BAFTA kids Roadshow with Place2Be (7th November)

We had some famous faces in school! We were one of only twelve schools in the UK to receive a visit from the BAFTA Kids Roadshow with Place2Be. The Roadshow was to showcase skills that are important for well-being and included a ‘Behind the Scenes’ assembly for Key Stage 2 children. Key Stage 1 and 2 children had a classroom visit from Ben Shires (CBBC’s Officially Amazing and Match of the Day Kickabout), Katie Thistleton (CBBC HQ) and Leona Vaughan, a BAFTA nominated actress best known for her role as Jana in CBBC’s Wolfblood. Year 5 had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon with the TV stars by taking part in a TV presenting masterclass.
