This Friday, 8th December, the pupils are invited to wear their own clothes in return for bringing in a donation towards a class Christmas hamper. Information about the relevant item to bring in has been distributed, but please seek clarification from your child’s class teacher should it be required. The raffle draws for the hampers will follow next week.
On Monday 11th December the school council have set up a Christmas jumper day. In return for a £1 donation, pupils can wear a Christmas jumper over the top of their normal uniform. The money raised will be donated to Save The Children.
We are supporting Children In Need today by selling Pudsey themed biscuits and donating £1 to wear mufti. The biscuits were made by the School Council in the cookery suite. Many thanks to Miss Sheard for her organisation of the event and to Mrs Powell for her cookery support!
School council are thrilled to have raised nearly £300 for local charity ‘Mosaic’ from the Crazy Sock Day that they organised.
QPA have been invited to take part in a Christmas card competition set by Mosiac (the recent charity we supported). Your child will have a sock template if they would like to take part and we would like all entries to be in school by 9am on Tuesday 17th October so we can send them off on Wednesday. On the back of the entry, please include your name, age and school.
We look forward to seeing all of your brilliant entires.
There are lots of wacky and wonderful socks on display today at QPA. The reason behind these colourful items of clothing is that we are raising money for Mosaic, a charity to support Dorset children who have suffered bereavement in their lives.
The Great Toy Swap very nearly raised £500 for the ‘We love Manchester’ fund. Well done everyone!
We are pleased to announce that ‘The Great Toy Swap’ raised £484 towards charities supporting those affected by the recent terrorism attacks in the United Kingdom. The idea to raise money came from a Year 6 pupil, with all pupils voting from a selection of ideas in the QPA elections.
