Children in Need 2019
P1-3 were given the responsibility for this year’s fundraising efforts. The main aim was to beat the previous total of £258 whilst at the same time, have lots of fun. After much brainstorming, the children voted on their favourite fundraising activities and set to work.
The quiz proved to be an amazing success, raising a grand total of £375 alone! Wowsers!! The winning family, selling an astonishing £76 worth of quizzes, were the Clark Family! The boy’s prize for being top sellers is the chance to take charge of the school for an afternoon and become Head Teacher and Depute Head – wish us luck! The winner of the actual quiz itself was Mr Angus Brown! This lucky winner has won a Pudsey Wristband and a set of Pudsey Ears.
We also had a successful Bring and Buy Sale. Not only did the parents get the chance to clear out old and unwanted toys before Christmas, the girls and boys got the chance to buy some new goodies! All remaining items will now be donated to the Cancer Research shop in town.
The girls and boys also got to come into school for the day dressed in their pyjamas, and bring their favourite teddy and a pillow too. In the afternoon we snuggled down and enjoyed cookies (kindly donated by the McGregor family) and hot chocolate. We were also delighted to welcome Renita Boyle to school to entertain the team with a bedtime story.
Other daftness on the day included face painting (thank you P7 girls!) and a marshmallow competition for the teachers…who could fit the most in their mouth?? Some controversy there – was it Mrs McKnight? Or Mrs Baillie? In the end, Mrs Ferguson, Mrs Baillie and Mrs McKnight all rook one for the team and skipped to the shop and back (a forfeit decided by the P1-3 class!), whilst the boys and girls stood at the school fence and cheered them on!
Amazing effort from all the girls and boys and on the day we raised an incredible £568 so far – with the final total yet to be announced! Wow! Thank you to all the parents for supporting this too! What a team we have at Leswalt Primary!
