School fol­lows dream - but needs your help

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

DON’T lose heart! There are still two weeks to col­lect to­kens to help Vic­to­ria Road Pri­mary School’s dream of a new play­ground a re­al­ity. Year 6 pupils Mil­lie Cronin, 10, and Grace Hollingsworth, 11, en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion, run by the KM Group and Denne, so their play­ground at Vic­to­ria Road Pri­mary School can be more fun. Mums and dads have been drop­ping off plas­tic wal­lets to nearby newsagents to col­lect the to­kens and a flyer is to be sent out to other lo­cal schools so they can sup­port Vic­to­ria Road in its bid to win the £7,500 makeover. Ac­cord­ing to the lat­est ta­ble Vic­to­ria Road is in 10th place out of 19 schools tak­ing part. In to­tal the school has re­ceived 219 to­kens. The school get­ting the most to­kens com­pared to the pupil head count, will win. The to­ken in next week’s Ken­tish Ex­press will be a bonus to­ken worth more points which could see the school shoot up the rank­ings. The school re­cep­tion has a box for any­one who wants to do­nate di­rectly.
