Some of our Year 6s are doing a fantastic job at lunch time selling poppies and other items for the British Legion. There are still items of stationary, some bands and poppies for sale should children wish to purchase this week.
This year, the centenary of the end of World War I, we will be selling a range of items to support The Poppy Appeal. Pupils will be able to buy one item in their classes, as well as a poppy, should they wish to.
Today’s Mufti and biscuit sale raised £773.39, all of which will be donated to the YMCA to support the homeless in the Bournemouth area. Many thanks to the whole community for supporting this cause but especially to Mrs Powell for all of her baking, as well as to Miss Sheard and the school council for their organisation.
This week we are supporting World Homeless Day in partnership with Bournemouth YMCA. Our school council agreed to support the event and decided to hold a mufti day this Friday, 12th October, in return for a £1 donation. There will also be a cake sale with cakes selling for 50p. All donations will be passed onto the YMCA who had great success last year in supporting homeless people within our area.
We are so proud of our pupil who cut her hair in support of the Little Princess Trust. This charity supports children who have lost their hair due to illness. Not only has she raised £250, but her hair will now be made into wigs for other children.
