Brooklands School is involved with various community activities throughout the year.
We have visits from members of U3A who come to talk to the children and at Christmas have the school choir perform at their meeting. The Town Mayor and local councillors attend the school for various events and competitions. The Town Mayor kindly invited the School Council to participate in a debate at the local Council Offices.
Every year a group of students attend the Remembrance Service in November at the War Memorial in town and afterwards visit the Royal British Legion to speak to war veterans. This year students wrote words of support on postcards for past and present soldiers, these were then presented to the Royal British Legion.
Students raise money throughout the year for local and national charities such as Keech Hospice, Red Nose Day and Sports Relief to name a just a few.
The school also collects Tesco vouchers, Nestle cereal vouchers, Morrisons Garden vouchers and Leighton Buzzard Observer tokens to help the school obtain free equipment. Please hand these into the school reception if you have any spare.
