Ormesby Village Junior School

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.

Christmas Jumper Day 2017

On the final day of term, children were able to wear Christmas jumpers in return for a donation to Save the Children.  The total raised at the junior school was £41.00  Thank you for supporting such a worthwhile cause.

Christmas Salvation Army Collection - 2017

Major Katrina Lennox from the Salvation Army came to our school - Monday 18th December to collect the fantastic presents our pupils had been bringing into school over 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.



Children have been selling poppies throughout the week at lunchtimes and a full collection box was handed over to the Ormesby Branch of the The Royal British Legion.  A grand total of £229.45 was raised. Thank you to everyone.


Money again was raised this year for 'Children in Need'.  Pupils were asked to dress in something bright or spotty.

A fantastic total of £175.50 was raised throughout the day.  A huge thank you to everyone.


To raise money for this year's Comic Relief, our School Council planned a special non-uniform day where the children came to school wearing red, or dressed as one of the ten Red Nose characters - in return for a suggested donation of £1.

A huge thank you to all who donated. I will inform everyone of the amount raised as soon as the donations have been counted.


A huge thank you to everyone, including parents and pupils, who supported the cake sale in LN on Thursday October 20th, not only baking cakes but supervising the event as well.

The total raised is £91 which should buy Ant and Dec a palace! 



To raise money for the local charity 'Nelson's Journey', all the children were asked to bring in a mug full of various items.  The charity was chosen by the School Council and voted for by the children. 

They rose to the challenge and the mugs were sold at the Infant's School Christmas Fayre. A fantastic total of £325.25 has been raised.  Well done to everyone.


Gena - from 'Nelson's Journey' was presented with a cheque for £325.25 by children from the Junior school's school council.

This money was raised by selling 'Mugs of Hope' at the Ormesby Village Infant School's Christmas Fayre.

Thank you to everyone involved.

Money was raised this year for 'Children in Need' by selling goody bags over break time and the children dressing up as 'Super Heroes'.

Years 5 and 6 at Ormesby Village Junior school have been reading War Horse and Studying World War 1.  Each child made a poppy in memory of one of the local men who lost their lives in that war.  They chose a name after visiting the War memorial on the village green.  The horses were inspired by the use of animals in the war.

The children have also been selling poppies at lunchtime and a full collection box was handed over to the Ormesby Branch of the British Legion.  A grand total of £238.54 was raised. Thank you.
