Mr Dave O’Reilly and Mrs Lyn O'Reily want to celebrate the time that their Granddaughter Jess had at Shawclough Primary School and the significant development she undertook during her time with us. They are going to award Shawclough School with an annual grant.

The grant is to be awarded to a child who demonstrates the same determination as Jess to grow and develop despite their own unique challenges. 

Each July the O'Reilly family will donate £120 to school for use during the next academic year. 

The child will be presented in an assembly with an engraved star for them to keep and another star that will be hung on the stars tree in the library which the family have gifted to school.

The child will be able to spend the money on something to enhance their education like a tablet, experience day or music lesson.

We would like to thank Mr and Mrs O'Reilly for this beautiful gesture and we can't wait to find out who will be first to celebrate hanging their star on the

'Jess McLean Special Stars' tree.
