  • RNLI Lifeboat

    Tue 21 November 17

    The children walked across to the River where we met up with the RNLI (Chiswick) Lifeboat team. They were shown the kits and lifesaving equipment they use in the event of having to save someone from the water. They arranged for one of their boats to go along the river and then approached the children. There was much excitement.

  • Dressed by the Kids Day

    Fri 16 June 17

    With the generosity of parents at the Barnes Montessori Nursery £273.05 was raised. The children ‘dressed the teachers’ to give poverty a dressing down. This has now been passed on to Oxfam and donations may in some cases be life-changing. It could give children a brighter future, get urgent food and water to people in disasters, or help families learn new skills and build better lives for themselves around the world. Just £27 is enough to train a teacher in some of the world’s poorest countries. Our collection would train 10 teachers! Read more
