Flamingo Class Trip to Brio’s

4th December 2017

Flamingo class enjoyed a fantastic trip to Brio’s last week! The children had an opportunity to watch demonstrations of the chefs making pizzas and had a sensory session, playing with the dough and exploring the toppings. They were able to try a range of different foods including olives, breadsticks and pepperoni before watching their pizzas being made and put in the special pizza oven. All the children tried their pizzas and took any remaining home in their own pizza boxes. They all enjoyed ice cream or sorbet for dessert!! Lorraine, the owner of Brio’s would like to invite any child from Palatine along to Brio’s with their family as they are happy to accommodate all addition needs!


Albion Cup Tournament

Palatine football team played in the Albion Cup Tournament at the Triangle Centre, Burgess Hill.  The team played amazingly well in all of their games and made it through to the semi finals against many other School teams.  They were only just beaten in the last minute of the match, missing the final.

All of the players worked so well as a team and the energy they put in to every game was incredible.  We are very proud of all of them for their amazing  efforts and football skills.

Special thanks to all staff that helped in making this possible for your school. We hope you never have to use it but should you need to in an emergency it is there to help save a life. Love and Blessings .

The Connor Saunders Foundation

On April 14th 2012 our son Connor Saunders’ life was taken after he was assaulted in Rottingdean Brighton. He was just 19 years of age.  Connor loved life and life loved Connor, he made our world a better place.

We as Connor’s Family have set up a charity to keep his memory and legacy alive! The Connor Saunders Foundation (Registered Charity No. 1148677) supports three wonderful causes that are close to Connor’s heart:

      Supplying football clubs and schools locally with Defibrillators and the required training;

Providing professional football coaching in schools for children with disabilities and learning


Raising Awareness for Organ Donation     

Connor made the selfless decision at the tender age of 16 to become an Organ Donor and because of that he saved 5 lives and helped enhance the life of a 10 month old baby too. Connor was a wonderful kind gentle person who was loved by everyone – he was one of a kind – the best kind.

Please check out Connor’s website wwwconnors5.com for more info, upcoming fundraising events and how you can help to support his foundation.

We are so unbelievably proud that your school is now heart safe thanks to our Connor’s foundation.

Kind regards The Saunders Family, 5 is Alive
