Alison Drayton, Acting Headteacher of St. Michael’s C of E Primary School in Flixton, welcomed many Intergen-Trafford volunteers and said how the school was delighted to host the ‘Get Together’ as a show of appreciation for all the support given to the pupils.
We were then entertained by the choir, members of the story tellers club, the ‘news team’, a street dance group as well as a fencing demonstration. The children all displayed various skills and performed very confidently in front of a most discerning audience!
Following a delicious tea, served by the school staff, Sue Mosco, Chair of Intergen-Trafford, gave a brief update of how Intergen-Trafford is involved in 25 schools helping in a variety of ways… Listening to readers, teaching knitting, dancing, gardening, mentoring, exam support… and much more!
Sue also informed the volunteers of the new web site which would be launched soon and thanked Bill Petite, and friends, for developing it. We are also hoping to produce a new leaflet to encourage more people to join us!
Other events to look forward to were our AGM in July and a music concert in March next year.
We also said ‘goodbye and thank you’ to retiring volunteers Margaret Hindle, Audrey Messenger, Ruth Griffiths and Joan Knowles who have helped many children over many years of volunteering with Intergen-Trafford.
