Congo fundraising!

HUGE shout out to Caitlin in reception who has so far raised a staggering £160!




Please get sponsoring us to raise money for our children and come along for a walk yourselves if you fancy!

This is one of our first exciting fundraising activities that all of our children will be taking part in to make our learning environment amazing! The challenge is to walk the length of the Congo River together, by completing a sponsored walk and fun challenges around our school grounds. Frogs have kindly donated £500 to start off funds toward our total of £3000 -the cake sale made £97.00!

The children will decide how the money is spent. They gave a few ideas in assembly-like new play equipment in KS1, a new scooter rack and a buddy bench for lonely children to sit on-but we will have a vote where everyone’s voices are considered through school council and make sure that it is spent on something that benefits the majority. And of course of you’ve really helped fundraise and have your own ideas for how it is spent, we’d love to hear them, come and talk to us.

Every child will carry a passport to collect stamps from each of the challenges set. All passports will be entered into a prize draw to win tickets to Tropiquaria Animal Sanctuary. Parents you are also invited to take part for a small fee of 50p to purchase a passport. Come along and join your child’s class for some fun! Please let your child’s class teacher know if you will be attending.
