Australian Bush Fire Fundraiser, January 2020
On Friday 24th January 2020 the school did a fund raising day to help the Australian animals affected by the bush fires. This had been suggested and organised by Erika (y6), Rebecca (y5), Summer (y5) and Scarlet (y5). Erika had explained it to the whole school earlier in the week.
Everyone donated one pound (or more) to come in non-school uniform; the grand total was....... £313!!
The main surprise was an “I’m A Teacher Get Me Out Of Here” event! Rebecca, Summer and Scarlet made some raffle tickets with teachers names on. The tickets were pulled out of a bag and the chosen teacher had to eat or drink something disgusting. There were mealworms, goats’ eyes, koala saliva, slimy pond water!
Erika had made activity packs for all the classes with an Australia Quiz and animal masks to colour in.
“I felt really sorry for all the animals in Australia, so I wondered if there was something we could do to help. So I decided to do an Australia theme day, and we raised money for them and now I feel great.” Erika stated.
“We’re so glad we organised this. Not only was it fun but we helped animals.” Summer, Scarlet and Rebecca said.
“Your donation maybe small but it can make a huge difference.”
The children truly had an amazing day, thank you for donating your money.
***the food was safe so don’t worry, it came from Mrs Manners kitchen***
