Primary 2 and Primary 6 will be working really hard in the next couple of weeks to organise ways to support and raise money for Children In Need.

From the 6th of November we will be selling Pudsey/Blush glow in the dark wristbands and Pudsey glow in the dark keyrings. The wristbands and keyrings will be £1 each. Children will initially we restricted to purchasing one item each until every class has been visited and all children have had the opportunity to purchase something. Children will then be given the chance to purchase more of they wish.

On Friday 17th of November the whole school is invited to join in by coming to school dressed in a SPOTACULAR way, for a £1 donation. Primary 6 and Primary 2 will also be running a ‘Guess Pudsey’s Birthday’ competition, along with some other activities that are still to be confirmed, so please keep an eye on Twitter for updates.

The hunt for the round pound is also on. The round pound went out of circulation on 15th of October but there are still millions to be found. These can still be donated to Children In Need, so if you have any at home that you would like donate please send them into school in an envelope clearly marked as ‘Children In Need’.

Thank you for your continued support.
