Red Nose Day (Part 2)
Thank you to everyone who supported Red Nose Day (part 2) on Thursday 1st April. Congratulations to 2EW and 4SG who succeeded in winning the children’s quiz – they both won a cinema afternoon complete with hot chocolate and popcorn!
Christmas Jumper Day:
Thank you very much for your support for Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 11th December. Even though Christmas this year feels very different to normal, it was lovely for us all to start feeling a bit more festive, whilst donating to a worthy cause. We managed to raise £300.75.
Macmillan Coffee Morning:
On Friday 25th September, we will be holding a Macmillan Coffee Morning with a difference! A choice of tasty treats will be baked in school and children are invited to donate 50p in order to receive their treat. Parents are requested to choose their child’s treat and make their donation onto SIMs Pay by Friday 18th September, under the Events section. The choice of treats for that morning will be: lemon drizzle cake, Canadian ginger cake and flapjack.
On Monday 16th December, our Christmas Fayre was a resounding success and Santa’s Grotto was a particular hit with children big and small! We would like to thank you for all your support, as well as your donations. We managed to raise over £1000, which will be used to help fund children’s trips and activities over the coming months. A big thank you must go to Miss Renshaw, Miss Wetton and all of the staff who helped with the organisation and ensured that the Fayre ran smoothly. We would also like to say thank you to the following businesses who kindly donated prizes for our raffle: Pizza Hut, Asda, Nuneaton Bowl, Nandos, Middlemarch Farm and Mega Bowl.
We managed to raise a total of £121.42 for the annual Poppy Appeal. Thank you for all your support.
Children in Need:
Thank you for all your support for Children in Need. We managed to raise a grand total of £639.48. This consisted of £259 for the purchase of Pudsey Bear headbands or wristbands and £380.48 for wearing pyjamas last Friday.
Green Token Scheme:
In the week beginning 9th September, Moat House received a £200.00 cheque from the Asda green token scheme, which we will be putting to good use to buy new books for our library, which will benefit all of our children. Thank you to anyone who supported us in the scheme.
School Council Fundraising:
Our School Councillors have been busy investigating the possibility of purchasing a canopy to protect the Year 6s from the elements while they are waiting for school to start in the mornings. As part of this project, they are keen to raise funds to support the purchase and are holding a non-uniform day on Friday 12th July, in exchange for 50p. Additionally, at Parents’ evening (Tuesday 16th July), the School Council will be holding an ice lolly/cake sale.
Red Nose Day:
On Friday 15th March, we took part in Red Nose Day for Comic Relief and sold the grand total of 400 red noses, which raised £500. Additionally, the children (and staff!) wore red themed non-uniform which raised an extra £140.02 for this worthwhile cause.
