The Foundation has been able to provide music, sports and classroom equipment for the school including a contribution towards a grand piano, equipment for the CCF and refurbishment of the swimming pool.
Donation Supports CCF and Rifle Shooting
A generous, anonymous donation towards shooting will enable hundreds of West Buckland pupils to experience a new sporting discipline. The gift enables the school to join the NSRA (National Small-bore Rifle Association) as an affiliated club and to purchase new equipment including smaller air rifles for younger pupils, a rifle with a left-hand bolt and air pistols.
The gift creates opportunities for hundreds pupils in the school to practise shooting and will enhance rifle practise in the CCF. Pupils from 10 years old will be able to learn safe techniques for using and maintaining air rifles and, hopefully, will be able to take part in shooting competitions in the future.
