Chard School was pleased to welcome the ‘Watch Project’ to its assembly on Monday (January 20).

The 'Watch Project' is a local charity which works to support the mental health of local adults and children and is the one that, as a school, Chard chose to support this academic year.

In assembly the school student council was delighted to present a cheque to the charity following collections at its Christmas performances last term.

Headteacher Katie Hill said: "We are delighted to be able to support this local charity which offers adults and children in the local community a safe place to restore capabilities and personal resilience.

"Our thanks to the school community for their generous donations to this worthy cause."
