Well done to the children in the Middle Area! You raised £382 for FARM-Africa! Together, the P4s and P5s raised this huge amount…with their wellies!!
The p4s had a Welly Day and took part in all sorts of fun and educational activities to raise money for the charity. Some of them decorated wellies and cut them out. They then stuck them onto a big piece of yellow paper to spell out the word Africa. Mr Barnes liked it so much he used in the Whole School Assembly today!
The p5s had a ten minute sponsored welly dance last Friday and managed to raise a lot of money thanks to kind sponsorship from their families.
At the Whole School Assembly today, Mr Barnes asked all the Pupil Councillors from P1-P7 to speak into the microphone at the Sports Centre to tell all the boys and girls what they’d done to help raise money for FARM-Africa in an enterprising way.
As they told him what they’d done, Mrs Clark from the school office told us the running total after each year stage. Mr Barnes had predicted that we’d raise over £450. He used coloured welly boots pegged to a badminton net to show all the children how much we’d raised at each stage. By the time he’d gotten to P5 he’d realised that the target had been met already!!! WOW!! Have a look at the photo below to see the total money raised by the children and their families.
They raised a staggering £2326.42 !! And the best news is there is still some money being counted as I type! Well done for all your hard work and all the teachers for their support. FARM-Africa will be over the moon.
Even Mrs Ford brought her wellies!
