SEPTEMBER saw staff and pupils return to Livingstone Primary School with an extra spring in their step – and one event they are especially proud of is their Jeans for Genes Day.
The children helped to raise awareness of Jeans for Genes by wearing an array of jeans and denim to school, on Vale Side in Mossley, on September 17.
They raised £244 for the charity, which is currently supporting six-year-old Olly Brooke-Tucker, a pupil at Livingstone, who is currently awaiting a bone marrow transplant.
Livingstone is a one-form entry primary school that prides itself on its supportive learning environment.
It has a 26-place nursery which offers both 15 and 30-hour provision.
The school prides itself on being a warm and welcoming school in which children ‘Grow, Learn and Achieve Together’.
Pupils, parents, and staff are all part of the Livingstone family, and they ensure pupils know that each one of them is cherished and supported whenever needed.
One parent said this year: “My child currently attends this school and started in the reception class.
“Within weeks of starting, he gained a great pride in the schools’ ethos and had a strong sense of belonging to this school and that is thanks to the staff and the school itself.”
A nursery parent commented: “Choosing Livingstone for our daughter was an easy decision. It is a school with a real sense of community that welcomes all families warmly.
Already after her short time, she is thriving.
“She races into school each day with a beaming smile on her face.”
