Sixty children from KS2 had a great time at the Charity Sleepover on Friday night and raised £823.82 in the process. In keeping the theme of raising money to help the people in the Philippines, children had a light tea of soup and a hot dog. They then watched a film. After the film, Mrs Farrell led a liturgy for the people affected by the typhoon. The children then had hot chocolate and a biscuit, before settling down in their sleeping bags and watching a second film. Eventually, eyelids began to droop and the children slowly went off to sleep – just after midnight!!
Year 4 were first to wake up at about 6.30am. Then, it was up, dressed and sleeping bags packed away – ready for a simple breakfast of toast and juice. And before everyone knew it Mums and dads were collecting their children.
The verdict from the children – a resounding success! The staff…..they went home exhausted for some well deserved sleep.
The money will be split (50/50) between CAFOD and the PTA (to improve mobile technology in the classrooms). Thank you for your generosity.
