The School Council invited the whole school to wear a Christmas Jumper on Friday 13th December to raise money for the charity Save the Children. Overall the children raised £340.30 from the day.
Christmas Jumper Day
Many of our children followed the school council's Top Tips to create their own Christmas Jumper!
õ Cut out Christmassy pictures and attach them to the front of a jumper
õ Attach bells or baubles to a jumper
õ Decorate a jumper with cotton wool snowballs
õ Trim your jumper with tinsel around the neck and cuffs
õ Create tin foil accessories (stars or snowmen maybe) and add them to a jumper
õ Make some pom-poms in Christmassy colours
Children in Need
The school council spent all week selling competition booklets which they'd created specially for Children in Need. The booklets sold like hot cakes and made a lot of money for the charity.
The council's fundraising efforts culminated in them selling real cakes on the playground on Children in Need day.
Thank you to everyone who donated and well done to our competition winners who were selected live from all the correct entries during our special Children in Need assembly.
Well done to one of our children who raised a fantastic £82.79 from a sponsored silence and to our school councillor who created our Children in Need competition for this year.
Our first task, as newly elected School Councillors, was to help display all the donations for Southend Foodbank ahead of the Harvest Festival assembly.
