A few weeks ago, one of our older pupil’s had the fantastic idea of doing a sponsored walk to raise money for Learning Centre funds, particuarly to buy new outdoor equipment and toys. The LC2 class planned and organised the walk in consultation with the head teacher. We used Google maps to plan our route – it was 2.5 miles from the school to the Sandbank swing park which we thought was perfect. We wrote to parents, made posters which the younger children in LC1 helped to decorate, and carried out a risk assessment.

Kirn Primary’s P3/2 and Mrs Taylor were so pleased to welcome Walter Lee from the charity RNLI to our class as part of our seaside topic. Walter spoke about the work of the RNLI, and how their members are prepared to brave high winds and heavy seas 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to save people in trouble! What we didn’t know was that they don’t get any wages, they are volunteers so we decided to raise some money to help. We held a ‘design-your-own-welly’ competition which cost 50p to enter, and had a ‘Wear Your Wellies!’ day with a £1 donation if you did.

We raised £124!! Thank You to everyone who donated to this very worthy cause
