“ Thank you for another wonderful day to remember and treasure. Sports Day truly reflected the ethos of Cropthorne School, striking a perfect balance between competitiveness, team spirit and sheer enjoyment.

Another lump in the throat and damp eyes – must be hay fever!”

“ On behalf of all the children who received the wonderful stockings you made, “the Moldova Project” would like to thank you for all of your hard work and effort. Most of the children that we support have never received a Christmas present before, and because of your generosity they have had a very special Christmas.

The children were given the stockings as part of a week-long project, where they met Santa and went to see the Christmas tree in Chisinau, the capital city of Moldova. They also went on some exciting day trips, such as the cinema and to a restaurant. These children do not often have the chance to experience things that we take for granted and they had a brilliant time.

The highlight of the week was when Santa handed out the presents to all of the children! They were so excited as they opened their stockings and began looking at the things inside, Children of all ages were delighted with their gifts and we are very grateful to you for giving them this experience. We were very impressed by your generosity and by how much effort you put into selecting toys and gifts for the children.

Thank you again for giving children living in poverty such a special experience. We hope to work with you again in the future.

Yours faithfully,

Emma Watson, Lucy Watson an Victoria Morozov (Directors of ‘The Moldova Project’ Charity Trust)

“I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the very beautiful flowers, the card and all the well wishes. I am very touched and feel incredible lucky that my children are at such an amazing school with such kind and caring people as you all.”

“Dear Chameleons,

Thank you so much for letting me come with you on your trip to Worcester, I enjoyed myself very much.

You should all be very proud of yourselves; so many people you spoke to commented and complimented you on your wonderful appearance, behaviour and politeness; it was a pleasure to watch.

Have fun with all the data you collected. I look forward to seeing you all again very soon,”

I just had to write a short message to you to say a huge “thank you” to Mrs Hunt and everyone else who was involved in taking the children on such a super school trip.

I am SO pleased Tom had the courage to go, he enjoyed every minute!  I’ve heard all about each day with wonderful excited descriptions and details!

Hats off to all the teachers and helpers for making this trip so special and fun.  I know that this experience will be one that Tom will treasure as I’m sure all the other children will too.  Thank you!

I can actually see an enormous leap in confidence for Tom, which is just wonderful.  Thank you also for making Tom feel so secure and welcome in your class and school.  He is so happy.
