We are delighted to announce that this year’s Social Festival will be raising money for Quest School.
Children with Autism have special and distinct needs, we are an ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis) School which strives to meet those needs. We help these children overcome difficulties, reach their full potential and enable them to get the most out of life. Go to gofundme.com/questschool to make a donation to our wonderful charity and help a child with Autism to live a full, happy, healthy, productive life
Quest are committed to E-Safety in all its forms. Please see our website which contains the Click CEOP button. This button gives you direct contact with The Child Exploitation and Online Protection command where you can report concerns or ask advice.
We were delighted to welcome our dear friends David Bracey and Desmond High (also known as ‘The Big Stride’ – www.BigStrideOut.co.uk ) to Quest recently.
They both undertook a walk of over 150 miles from Birmingham to London via the Grand Union Canal back last Autumn – no mean feat as they decided they would set a five day target to complete the walk!
The outcome was that they managed to raise £25,000 and shared this between their chosen charities:
- The Primary Club
- Lupus UK
- Fields of Life
- Orchid Male Cancer
- And of course Quest School!
We were delighted to receive the donation and we are using the funds to provide play equipment and IT for our pupils as well as specialist training for our staff.
To celebrate the efforts of David and Desmond, Quest held a joint presentation and we were delighted that our patrons Derek Underwood MBE and his partner Pat were able to join with us to present the cheques to all of the recipient charities.
Well done to all and a particularly big thank you to David and Desmond!
Today is Stop Cyber Bullying Day.
Our pupils have comprehensive E-Safety lessons and assemblies to teach them how to stay safe online. For online parent training, please visit our website and click on the E-Safety tab.
Many thanks to Covea Insurance Plc for organising the quiz night last night in support of The Quest School. One of our teams came away with the “wooden spoon” prize of a packet of Smarties. Apparently only Smarties have the answer!
All pupils have worked together today to complete a joint project. They have made a wooden bench with planters at each end which will be planted and maintained by pupils throughout the next academic year.
