Fantastic fundraising from two of our children!

Two of our children, Elena (Y6) and Cristina (Y2), are having a dramatic haircut next week to send their hair to Little Princess Trust to be made into wigs. They are raising much needed funds for the charity too. If you are able to donate then please follow the click on the image below.

It always makes us so proud when our children do something that really shows how much they care about others!

Strong with these runners the force is…

A huge thank you for all your support with this year’s Star Wars Marathon Day. All runners were amazing and ran their miles with Mrs Clarke throughout the day. Well done to Mrs Clarke for running all those miles and to Caz for joining her (at a social distance of course!) to run some miles as well.

Thank you for all your donations. The total raised for Mental Health UK stands at £1160! AMAZING!

Much appreciated, your support is….to next year here is!

Mrs Wilson’s Socially Distanced May 4th Run!

On May 4th we usually run our Star Wars marathon at Fishergate Primary School with all the children and staff involved – and often many parents and governors! We have had to postpone this year’s event, but Mrs Wilson is planning to run past as many Early Years children’s homes as possible to give them a (socially distanced!) wave.

Foodbanks in the UK are under more pressure than ever in the current situation; York alone has seen a 400% increase in use since lockdown began. 

You can donate to Mrs Wilson’s JustGiving page by clicking  the picture below!
