This year our focus charity for fundraising is UNICEF. This has been chosen by staff and the Pupil Parliament because it fits in with a number of issues that we have looked at in the curriculum and because the work on children’s rights (in particular, girls’ rights) ties in with ideas we have been exploring in school.
The children who chose to be involved worked extremely hard in their lunch and break times to get a range of activities and stalls ready before we opened to the community at 9:30.
The support from our parents, governors and pupils was fantastic and showed just how rooted in our community the school is.
We were really pleased to be able to raise over £300 for UNICEF and everyone had an enjoyable morning.
It was also an opportunity for a short presentation to parents and the community about our journey towards UNICEF’s Rights Respecting School Award this year.
