Apple Orchard School provides a supportive and stimulating environment for teachers and children to thrive. Funds raised for the Teacher’s Fund help our school attract and retain excellent, talented teachers, and provide benefits beyond what is possible on a regular basis. Teachers are able to attend workshops, seminars, and courses as well as continue their education and explore new areas of learning and expertise.
