Beaconside Primary School


Thank God It's Friday

“Thank God It’s Friday” (TGIF) is an after-school club at Beaconside Church of England Primary School, Penrith. A growing number of pupils and their families attend this informal worship and "messy church" event which is organised by teachers, governors and members of the church community from several local churches. It has played an important role in strengthening the Christian character of the school.
