From the Year 6 Fashion Group.
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.
Year 6 will be organising an Easter Fair on the 22rd of March to raise money for CAFOD. The money we raise will be used to buy: Start a Business; a Goat, Chicken Coop, Vegetable Garden, and a Pair of Pigeons, from CAFOD world gifts. Buying these things will help people in need rebuild their lives
The Fair will be during school times and classes will come one at a time. There will be remote control car races, a cake sale, also an Easter Egg Hunt, and mini games. To have ago at each activity children will need around £2.50.
On Friday 18th March we have decided to support Sport Relief by organising a Fun Run at St Mary’s School. All money raised will go directly to our partner school in Uganda to pay towards a much-needed security fence around their school grounds. Our fun run follows a course around our own school grounds and each lap will be around half a mile. Children will be encouraged to run at their own pace for as long as they want.
Members of the school council, who are helping to organise this event, gave an assembly to the whole school, explaining how the Fun Run will work.
