We are always impressed by the way the parents and children from St Andrew's school support the charitable events that are held throughout the year. We know we ask a lot sometimes but parents are always supportive, whether it's asking for costumes, items for the class, food or money.
Please see below some of the events held this year.
Thank you for your continued support.
BBC Children In Need|
On Friday, 12th November 2014, staff and children wore 'something spotty' to raise money for Children in Need. The children took part in various 'spotty' activities and games and made cakes which they sold after school.
Thank you to everyone for your support - we sent a cheque for £400.00.
This year, instead of having our Welly Wednesday, we asked all the children to bring in a food/houshold item. The good were taken up to St Andrews and displayed on the altar during our Harvest Service, which was held jointly with Woodlea School.
After the service all the goods were taken to St Mary's Church to be distributed to the local community in need of some extra help.
Thank you for supporting the food bank.
MacMillan Coffee Afternoon|
On Friday, 26th September 2014 we held a coffee afternoon for MacMillan Cancer Support. Lots of people joined us for a lovely afternoon and there were plenty of delicious cakes on offer donated by parents/grandparent/staff.
A magnificent £380.00 was raised for this worthy cause - thank you to everyone who participated.
'Jeans for Genes' Day|
On Friday, 19th September 2014the children and staff were invited to come to school for a donation to 'Jeans for Genes' Day.
£145.00 was raised and this money has been taken to The Legacy Rainbow House. This is a charity that works with children with acquired brain injury, multiple disabilities and complex health needs.
