Chocolate- responses from the Governors to our letters

Last month, Kestrel Class wrote letters to the Governors, to ask them if we may be able to sell chocolate in our new school tuck shop. 

In response, last week, the Clerk to the Governors sent us a letter, on behalf of the Governors, thanking us for our letters and saying how impressed they were. 

Furthermore, Mr Wimshurst, our Chair of Governors, visited us today. He said, "I have been a Governor here since before you were born, and this is the nicest thing that has ever happened!" He also said that he was impressed and that he was interested to read all the different views that we had, including that about half the class were not in favour of selling chocolate at the tuck shop. He felt that as we were so thoughtful, he felt that the children should make the decision. One member of Kestrels suggested that perhaps only 2 squares of chocolate should be sold. 

Very kindly, Mr Wimshurst gave us some high quality dark chocolate to try...Delicious- thank you!
