RED NOSE DAY


Red was the colour of the day as children celebrated Red Nose Day by dressing up and wearing red noses.  A total sum of £139.27 was raised.  Thank you to everyone.


HEARING DOGS FOR THE DEAF

In response to Moss and Trish visiting our school weekly listen to children read,  we held a sponsored silence and cake sale in aid of Hearing Dogs for the Deaf.  The children dressed up as a variety of dogs, even bringing in their own fluffy dogs and so many cakes were donated.  The final sum collected was a fantastic £1142.16.  Many, many thanks  to everyone.
Varley, please see general events page, a hearing dog, visited our school with his owner Ann Jillings to inform  pupils of all the good work he and other trained dogs do to support deaf people.  Anne, who has a 13 year old deaf son Daniel, couldn't praise Varley enough and through a power-point Daniel said having Varley had changed his life.

Our school recently raised the fantastic amount of  £1142.16, which we have chosen to sponsor the training of a black Labrador called Chrissie to become a hearing dog for the deaf.

Thank you everyone for your generosity.


Christmas Salvation Army Collection - 2018


Major Katrina Lennox from the Salvation Army came to our school - Monday 17th December to collect the fantastic presents our pupils had been bringing into school over the month of December. 

She explained to the pupils how and where the presents would be distributed - to children who don't receive any presents over this festive time.

Thank you to everyone who kindly donated to this worthy cause.

What a fantastic evening the children had dancing the night away at our school disco - many of them winning certificates for their dancing skills.  A brilliant amount of £353.36 was raised throughout the evening.

School Fun Run 2018

Thankfully, on Thursday 3rd May the afternoon stayed dry for our annual Fun Run - even the sun shone for a while.

Parents, carers and friends came along to encourage the children taking part in the event.

Pupil's were buzzing with excitement and enjoyed dressing up in various colourful costumes. 

This year we wanted to capitalise on this opportunity to raise £1000 which will be put towards revamping our school library.  Our fantastic sub total raised so far today, Friday 4th May is £600. The final amount raised will be announced next week.

Well done to everyone who took part.
