Dear Mr Bennett,

I would like to congratulate you and your school on the conduct of two pupils who came and volunteered at my school yesterday.

Kyle and Jake Marquis are both former pupils from Butterknowle.  Their mum is our school cook and yesterday her sons volunteered to come into school to help out.  We opened on a partial basis and I was running the school on a much reduced staff team!

Jake worked in Class One with the Infants.  He also made hot chocolate for the whole school and throughout the day was a delight.

Kyle worked with me in Class One with Year 1 and Year 2 pupils.  They were completing a writing task and I had to leave the class frequently to answer phone call and visitors to the school.  Throughout the morning Kyle's gentle and warm manner worked magic on the children and we got some fabulous writing done!

Warmest regards,


Tessa Fenoughty
