The old canteen building was knocked down and the foundations for the new school building laid, encasing our time capsule to let future generations know what it was like to be a Brent pupil at this time.
Thank you to all who made a list of their ten things that you felt reflected your life as a Brent pupil giving reasons for your choices. We had posters, written reports, letters and annotated drawings sent in and the teachers looked at all of your ideas and picked twelve to be included in the time capsule. Well Done All!

The pupils took part in a competition called Playsafe, a toy design competition run by Trading Standards in association with the British Toy and Hobby Association. The challenge was for young people to design a toy suitable for children aged three to seven. As well as drawing their designs, entrants had to provide notes explaining how the toy is used, its safety features, what its development benefits are, whether the toy is for indoor or outdoor use and if it is suitable for children with special needs.
We have been informed that 2638 people voted for their favourite Playsafe creation and posted very supportive comments on Facebook. This was an excellent response.
Our Brent entries did very well, unfortunately we did not win but Mala's entry 'Flying Owls' came second with a fantastic 160 votes. A very well done to all.
Following the public vote, all designs were submitted to Kent County Council (KCC), who then selected the top ten in the region to be entered in to the national competition.
We are absolutely delighted to inform you that for the Age 6 - 11 Category - Primary Schools, in 1st place was Cara from Brent Primary School, for her design 'Personality Dolls'.
Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England and Wales. The scheme has seen three community groups and projects in each region awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 - all raised from the 5p bag charge.
Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco's 390 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags.
Customers voted in store to decide which local groups should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards using tokens given to them at the check-out in store.
