Best of all was the fantastic costumes and amazing dance moves! Thanks again to the members of staff that helped and Mrs Burt for running ‘corners’ and her help planning the parties. Also thanks to the members of the parent council for your help last week. All was greatly appreciated.   We raised a fantastic £514.72
