King Charles Friendship Stop
With the money raised by the school council we have decided that a ‘Friendship Stop’ would be a fantastic addition to KC! The ‘Friendship Stop’ is a place where children can meet up with their friends, make new friends, or talk to someone if they are upset or worried. There will always be someone at the ‘Friendship Stop’ and we are really excited to have this at our school.
