  • STUDENTS GIVE FOR LOVE IN A BOX

    The students at Foreland Fields School have all recently been involved with the "Love in a Box" project - a big thank you to all who have sent in gifts for this project . We managed to fill more than 30 boxes of gifts to go to children in Romania this Christmas. The students were all involved in decorating the boxes and selecting which gifts to put in, learning about the needs of others, and charitable giving, along the way. Our Chair of Governors collected the boxes on 6th December ready to drive to Romania and after a long journey, our boxes arrived in Slatina in Romania this morning!
