On Friday December 13th 2019, the children could choose to wear a Christmas jumper instead of their school sweatshirt or cardigan. In return for this, they were asked to make a donation of £1:00 towards the Save the Children charity. It proved a very popular occasion with a huge range of colourul and festive knitwear livening up the school. Thanks to the generous donations of all involved, we raised £88:00 for Save the Children, who work to improve the lives of children everywhere.
Our Year Six children held our usual small service at Brightwalton Memorial to mark Armistice Day. Rev Miri led the service, with the children laying a wreath and reciting the poem 'In Flanders Fields', before providing readings and playing the Last Post and Reveille. Several members of staff and governors attended, along with villagers and parents, including Tillie's grandfather, who is pictured with the children.
We raised £249.75 for the British Legion Poppy Appeal through our sales of poppies and related items in school.
This year the children showed their support by wearing what they liked and donating what they wished - we raised £206!
