Alongside examples of extreme bravery and ensuring pupils received credit for their endeavours, our main focus for the Beanbag Cheer this week went to a group of Year 3 pupils; Jayden, Kara, Kira, Lillia, Naia, Olivia and Shay.
Following Mr Davies’ inspirational assembly about Keech Hospice – our charity for the term, the children took it upon themselves, during a plan concocted in Late Class, to do their own fundraising for the charity.
They came up with an idea of organising a stall where they would be able to sell items to raise money. This included creating origami animals, loom band bands, chocolate brownies, and selling second hand books and some of their toys.
The master plan for a ‘pop-up shop’ was not unveiled to parents until the request for a taxi service was announced. The children met up on Sunday afternoon at 2pm and were up and running by 2.30pm. By 3.30pm they had raised a staggering £101 in 1 hour for the hospice.
To say that their parents, and the staff, were impressed is an understatement. They will be running the country by Year 8! Thank you all so much. This is such a valuable cause and the money raised will make a tremendous difference to children who have life limiting illnesses and needs.
Well done to you all.
