Nakirebe Primary School – Uganda

Last Friday disaster struck our partner school in Uganda when the year 1 and boy’s dormitory roofs were severely damaged by torrential rain and storms. We are asking for extra support to help them to repair the damage swiftly. Sadly, many books and other resources were also lost.

Help with the fundraising by making and/or buying cakes after school on Friday 7th April @ 3.15pm.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Year 4 will be taking part in the world’s biggest coffee morning, in support of Macmillan Cancer Support, on Tuesday 11 October from 9 – 10am in the school hall. We would welcome donations of cakes, labelled and delivered to the school hall on the morning of 11 October!

There will be tea and coffee available for a donation towards the charity, along with a variety of games and a raffle that year 4 will be organising. It would be lovely to see as many of you as possible, and it will give you the chance to have a natter with friends.

We thought that children in Key Stage 2 (years 3-6) might like the opportunity to buy a cake at break time. They will be able to do this with their class teacher, if they bring in some change for the charity. Cakes will range from 30p – £1.

Year 4 look forward to seeing you!

Year 6 Fashion Show

Unfortunately the fashion show has been cancelled BUT we will be selling secondhand clothes, cakes and ice lollies for 50p each on Monday 18th April after school.

We are still raising money to buy world gifts from CAFOD. Please send in any donations of clothes or cakes for Monday.

From the Year 6 Fashion Group.

Fashion Show

A group of Year 6 Pupils have decided to host a fashion show. This will be held on the 18th of April 2016.

The reason for this fashion show is to raise money for CAFOD. We are aiming to raise at least £65 to buy two of their World Gifts: A ‘Perfect Pair of Pigeons’- a pair of pigeons will breed and provide food for a family.  In addition we would like to buy a ‘Chicken coop’; this gift provides the equipment and food to nurture chicks and raise them to chickens.

On the day it will cost 20p to enter and there will be refreshments and biscuits. Clothes will be different ages and sizes so the costs will vary.

We are asking you to send in unwanted clothes, however, these clothes need to be nearly new in order for us to sell them. Please NO school clothes.  Please send clothes to the Year 6 classroom.

If you would like to donate or buy your own World Gifts, you can do it here.
