The Mayor of Hounslow, Tony Louki, came to visit Grove Park Primary last week, as part of the school’s annual ‘Charities Week’.

He had a busy morning, watching a Christmas performance by the school choir and then attending a meeting of the school’s student council, who quizzed him on everything from his
gold chain to his political views.

Then Mayor Louki led a whole school assembly where he spoke passionately about his two ‘charities of the year’: Our Barn Community and The Hounslow Seniors Trust.

During the week, each year group at Grove Park was also given its own local charity to learn about, with representatives from their charities, Hounslow Food Bank, Hounslow Toy Library and
The Mulberry Centre, coming into school to speak to the students. Other classes visited their
charity - The Chiswick Lifeboat Station - to see it in action. The relationship with the charities
does not end this week. The children will continue to work with their chosen charity over the
remainder of the school year, through visits and fundraising.

Rudy Price, Head Boy commented: “It was really inspiring to hear about charities making a difference in our local neighbourhood. We learnt that as well as giving money, we can also give our time to support them. I definitely want to volunteer as soon as I'm old enough!”

Rachel Davies, (pictured below with the Mayor), Headteacher at Grove Park Primary said, “Contributing positively to the lives of others is an integral part of life at Grove Park School, which is why we hold our Charities Week annually. This year we wanted students to think about their ties with their local community, so we focused on supporting several wonderful local charities, some of which have also been a huge help to Grove Park families in the past."

Next week, families across the whole school will be organising a toy collection for ‘That’s a
Wrap’, a community group in Hounslow which provides gifts of toys to disadvantaged children
living in the local area at Christmas.
