Some of our Year 5 children were inspired by our Eco-Week. They worked together to litter-pick around their local area. Well done!

This term our School Council have decided to help a local charity by holding a pet food drive in school. Our Key Stage 2 School Council members visited Newcastle Cat and Dog Shelter and met with Martin to learn more about how the animals are looked after and how they are re-homed. To read more about this visit, and our pet food drive please visit our School Council page by clicking here.

We decided to make Christmas cards to sell for charity  We made the cards and decorated them with scenes such as angels, elves, Santa's and The Nativity. We sold the cards for £1 each. We also sold a football shirt and ball  that had been won in a school raffle. 

We wanted to help a charity called Hospitality and Hope. It provides a food bank, soup kitchen and clothes bank for people in need. With the money we raised we bought food and treats to donate to the food bank. Paul the manager was very happy and grateful and we met lots of lovely people!

We really enjoyed our fundraising and we think that everyone should try to help other people.

Have you every heard of  a charity called Locks of Love? What about The Little Princess Trust? These organizations collect donated ponytails and make them into hair prosthetics for children. Their mission is to return a sense of self-confidence and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss. Over the last year two of our children and one of our staff members (Miss McGeery) have grown their hair especially to donate it to these fantastic charities. Each of our fundraisers collected sponsorship for the event, meaning they could donate money as well as their ponytails. Between the three members of our Academy they raised over £1500 for the Little Princess Trust.
