Thank you to everyone who supported the school last week with the cake sale and World Book Day. The photo at the bottom of this blog and on the website show what a fantastic response we had with some amazing costumes.
This week is the 2nd week of Fairtrade Fortnight in school and we are half way to our goal of selling 90 one Kg bags of rice to support the education of a child in Malawi. If you have not yet purchased your bag please let the office know. As part of this week’s activity all of the classes will be given 5 fairtrade ingredients and be challenged to bake a cake using all of the ingredients provided. Our decorate a door competition will be judged on Friday as we end our fairtrade celebrations.
