St.Patrick's School was recently nominated by the residents of Churchtown Gardens to receive a friendship bench from the charity 'Jack's Journey'. The bench, which is made from recycled plastic bottles, arrived before half term and has proved to be a very popular addition to our junior playground.
'The charity “JACKS JOURNEY” was founded in March 2013 by Hollie Webster, in loving memory of her brother Jack Webster, an R.A.F. Senior Aircraftman, who was tragically killed in a car crash on January 13th 2013. Jack was a free spirit, full of fun and adventure who lived his short life to the full'. (Jack's Journey website)
On 15th June we welcomed Kath, Jack's Mum and residents from Churchtown Gardens to present the bench to the School Council. It was a lovely occasion and we are very grateful to Jack's Journey and the residents of Churchtown Garden for nominating us.
