RAISE THE ROOF
We are currently raising funds to pay for a new roof for the main school building! We have been overwhelmed by offers of support from parents and friends of the school. Our fund raising efforts will be listed below along with photographs and comments about the different events. A fund raising 'thermometer' has been created and we will update this on a regular basis. In the meantime if anyone has any ideas or suggestions about fundraising for this important project, please do complete the form below and return to the Office Team through the contact us section of this web site. Thank you!
We have a number of specific events and activities coming up, all organised by parents and friends of the school. Details for each activity or event will follow as the dates approach.
TALENTS and ENTREPRENEURIAL SKILLS:
As one of our fundraising challenges children either individually or in groups were invited to put together a proposal to turn £5 into profit! The children who took part really put there all into their fundraising and there were some brilliant ideas how to raise money. Please enjoy some of the pictures and stories below of all the hard work the children put in!
Most Money Raised
Megan came up with the brilliant idea to do a number square raffle. She used her £5.00 to purchase stamps to send out letters asking for prizes, she posted letters to different companies and also handed out letters locally.
Most creative fundraising
Callum and Isabelle are siblings at Holy Trinity who worked as a team! They decided to open up an Italian restaurant in their house, they used their £5 to do some shopping for their scrumptious menu that they came up with. They laid the table, cooked and served the food and even cleaned up afterwards!! After this venture they also decided to work really hard and do some car washing, they cleaned 8 cars and 1 motorbike in total! Not only this but they also baked and sold brownies and flapjacks as well as buying football cards which they took to their Grandad's pub and sold the squares.
Anna used her £5 to fundraise by selling an 'egg space' for 50p with the chance of winning a prize!
Bethan made some fabulous loom bands and sold them at church as well as making lots of yummy cakes to sell.
Class 6 worked together as a whole class on their project! Their teaching assistant Mrs Abbott bought some cake ingredients with their £5 and made lots of batches. Class 6 then decorated 250 cakes together!! They then held a cake sale after school and sold their cakes for 30p. Lots of parents and children purchased and really enjoyed their lovely cakes!
Sam used his £5.00 to buy 30 blank cards that he then decorated them by colouring them in beautifully. He took them along to his church and sold them to family and friends.
Christopher used his money to buy some ingredients and then made some yummy cakes and biscuits. He sold that batch to his family then used his profit to make some more to sell!
A family effort from the Phillips! Ruby-Mae, Poppy, Freddie and Jack (a new starter with us in September!) decided to host a 'Spring Garden Fete' and invite all their family. They used the £5 to purchase hotdogs, seeds & prizes. They also made prizes and asked for donations from family. They charged 20p for each game/cake/purchase!
Louen spent his £5 on a prize for his Easter themed raffle! He made a paper-weaved basket to hold his prize and then his mum asked all her friends and family if they would like to buy a ticket. He sold his raffle strips for £1 and offered his wonderful Easter basket filled with goodies as the prize!
Cai chose to make and sell cakes with his money that his mum took into her work to sell. He then re-invested this profit to make another load to sell at his dad's work! He then re-invested again to make a bunch of bacon sandwiches to sell at his football team's league match! Cai's sister Jess kindly volunteered to sell these as the match was on and they went like hot cakes, even the opposition bought them! Nothing beats a bacon sandwich at football match!
Oliver and Ben are another pair of siblings who worked together on their project. As it is Spring they decided to use their £5 to buy some bulbs and then their mum kindly donated some compost and seed pots so they could plant them. Ben potted all the bulbs and Ollie joined him in selling the potted bulbs for 50p to their neighbours.
TRINITY FEST: The school grounds will become a festival event with live music, food and entertainment. A date for your diary for July 2017!
Don't forget to donate unwanted CDs and DVDs to the school. We can get money back on these. Please place them in the orange box at the main entrance!
