£1,000 bonus for school

March 29 2018

A BROTHER and sister from the Tynings School in Staple Hill have been giving their nan even more hugs than usual after she bagged more than £1,000 of prizes for fellow pupils.

Maria Lang, grandmother to Connor and Kayla, won a draw at her local Tesco store. Her prize included £500 of book tokens and £500 to spend on school equipment.

Because the draw was organised in association with Kleenex, the win also included 20 cases of the manufacturer's products.

Deputy headteacher Angela Berger teamed up with Connor and Kayla to invite Maria in to the school to say a big thank you.

Mrs Berger said: "We are so thrilled to have £1,000 to spend on resources for the children. We will make sure we spend the money wisely. Thank you, Mrs Lang!"
