Promise Auction!

After a 3 year hiatus due to Covid-19, this week we were able to finally host the Friends of Dent Promise Auction again. We are so grateful to the Friends of Dent Committee for all of their hard work in organising it and also to all those who generously donated promises.

We were absolutely astounded that the bidding on the night came to over £7,000!!

A huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who came and contributed in any way, the money will make a tremendous difference in allowing us to continue providing a fantastic range of activities and learning opportunities to our pupils.

Interfaith Workshop with Sedbergh Primary School

This week the whole of Key Stage 1 & 2 travelled to Sedbergh Primary School to take part in an interfaith workshop organised by Andy Burgess and other local faith leaders.

The workshop gave pupils a chance to grill representatives of a wide range of different faiths and hear them present their beliefs. This was a challenging and thought provoking session and it was particularly good for pupils to see members of different faiths interacting with respect for each other despite their different opinions.

Class 2 Meditation Centre Trips

As part of their PSHE and personal development, Class 2 have again been visiting the Meditation Centre to have some time learning basic yoga and breathing techniques. The pupils developed their sense of how they can use manage their own bodies and have a sense of themselves that can be helpful to them in times of stress or difficulty.
