Pupils Act Their Age to help Children in Need
During these challenging times, the School Council wanted to do as much as possible to help the Children in Need charity. They set a challenge to take part in the ‘Act Your Age’ fundraising campaign.
As ever, our pupils rose to the challenge, coming up with a whole host of active and creative challenges. They raised an amazing £2,637 in sponsorship!
From Nursery, we had Kyra learning two new things a day for the two weeks of half term and Olivia walked four miles.
In Reception, Monty walked 4.5 miles and Albie walked 4km raising £100. Ella made a 4ft flower over 4 days.
