Fundraising in 2018-19
Mothers Day Gift Sale
Friday 22 March 2019: Children donated good quality items for our gift sale and these were beautifully wrapped and sold at our gift sale. School councillors helped with the sale and children were able to choose a great gift for the special lady in their family. The sale raised £682.20 which will go to the school council playground fund. A huge thank you to Mrs Dudley and Mrs Jennings who spent time at the weekend gift-wrapping all the presents.
Year 4 - Sponsor a Child in Brazil
Thursday 14 February 2019: Year 4 children were busy designing, baking and selling cakes. The sale raised £223 from their Rainforest Café and Cake Sale to sponsor the education of a child in Brazil.
Year 3 - "Blues for Loos"
Thursday 31 January 2019: Our Year 3 children and staff recently raised £111.65 from their “Blues for Loos” day and staff holding a cake sale at teabreak. Proceeds will go towards purchasing toilets in another part of the world through the charity ‘Toilet Twinning’ (toilettwinning.org) which provides toilet facilities in areas where sanitation is poor.
Christmas Jumper Day
Wednesday 13 December was our Christmas dinner day and we combined it with Save the Children’s ‘Christmas Jumper Day' raising £179.95 for Save the Children.
Children in Need
Pupils and staff held a non uniform day on Friday 16 November 2018 with all proceeds being donated to Children in Need. The fantastic amount of £237.50 was raised.
MacMillan Coffee Sale and Coffee & Cake event
On Friday 28 September an amazing £255 was raised when we joined Macmillan Cancer Support's fundraising event, the World's Biggest Coffee Morning. Children and staff brought in an array of delicious cakes which were sold to eager buyers at break time and after school. In the afternoon there was a “Coffee with Mr Finch” event for parents/carers and it was good to see a number of parents and carers join us in the hall to support this event.
Our thanks go to Mrs Dudley and her office team who organised the events and to all the children, parents and carers who contributed to the events.
