Couldn’t quite believe my eyes when I opened the door to welcome all these top class athletes into the school this morning! The boys and girls made a super effort today of dressing up in their sportiest clothing and we saw a range of different sports represented from the ever popular rugby and football to horse riders!
Over the week you may of noticed the odd Pudsey ear or wrist band floating about, that is because our House Captains have been ultra dedicated to selling merchandise to help raise funds! In addition to this, pupils have ran a ‘Guess The Name of the Bear’ competition for the chance to win a cuddly wee companion.
A huge thank you to all the kind donations towards the Bring n’ Buy afternoon – we are all astounded at the generosity from everyone in bringing in bits and pieces to sell on for others – this also fed in well to our Eco Plan where we are promoting the reuse and recycling of everything – toys included! Another successfully ran enterprise by our astounding team of House Captains across both Leswalt and Kirkcolm – thank you Miley, Taylor & co who all lent a hand!
Finally, each pupils contribution for putting their all into completing a whopping 5 round of Joe Wicks 5 minute exercise videos (I think we can all remember the intensity of these from the lockdown days….!) The whole school absolutely smashed it, with the upper class going that extra mile fitting in an additional 20 minute live workout this morning!
Altogether we managed a grand total of £197.63 which is absolutely astounding for such a wee school out in the countryside! It means so much to a school that promotes the Rights of the Child and Global Goals as part of their ethos to be able to take part so enthusiastically on a day like today and even more to absolutely smash it out the park with our generosity!
Here are some photos of todays fun…
