Portpatrick Supports Children In Need 2021

As part of providing opportunities for Pupil Voice, our House Captains and Pupil Council rolled up their sleeves and helped organise this year’s Children In Need fundraising activities.  Supporting charities and recognising the needs of others is part of our learning journey as a Rights Respecting School who supports Global Goals. Our event activities also align with World Children’s Day which is tomorrow.

Children in Need is a charity that provides grants and funding to projects based in the UK that have the aim of helping disadvantaged young people. This help comes in a wide variety of forms. For example, a lot of CIN’s invaluable work involves supporting charities that help children who have been affected by poverty, disabilities, abuse, and mental health difficulties.

The boys and girls came to school dressed in their sporty clothing ready to take part in Joe Wick’s Five Minute Workouts throughout the day. We had a range of sporting activities represented from workout style to ballet dancers.  The teachers also joined in ready to get active.

# Health & Wellbeing

If you are feeling energetic, why not join in with Joe Wick’s at home here!

With the kindness and generosity of our families we were able to combine our Eco Goal of Recycling and Reusing by running a Bring & Buy sale of pre-loved toys and books.  There were lots of smiling faces and enthusiasm to grab a bargain.  Our older pupils applied their maths skills to organise a float, calculate change and count the total raised.

The sale is open!

# Successful Learners

In total, including donations from families and the sales of merchandise,  our wee school has raised an impressive £170.10 which is fantastic for our wee school. Together, as a partnership, we raised a grand total of £523.28!

Very many thanks to everyone who contributed and supported the event in whatever way they could.

Sending you all a Pudsey hug!
