Year 4 Earthquake Appeal

Year 4 have been following the Nepal earthquake disaster as part of their RE lesson. Concern for the hundreds of thousands of people made homeless when entire villages were flattened, prompted them into action.

The children desperately wanted to support the world–wide appeal for help. Together they decided that the best way to raise money quickly was through a whole school non-uniform day. Representatives pitched the idea to Mrs. Griffin who willingly gave them the go ahead.

The whole school participated in the non-uniform day on Friday 22nd May. Year 4 had set themselves a target of raising £300 and publicized the event through posters around school and in the Newsletter to parents. The £300 target was nearly met by donations collected from the children in the morning; further ‘bucket’ collections at the end of the day resulted in this target being exceeded. The total raised was a fantastic £340.

A huge thank you to everyone involved but particularly to the children of Year 4 for putting into practice our school value of empathy and organising the event.
