MIDDLE BARTON SCHOOL COUNCIL
September- Macmillan Fundraiser
In September we organised an event to support Macmillan's 'World's Biggest Coffee Morning'. A coffee and cake afternoon was held for parents and members of the community in the afternoon which was followed by a cake sale for everyone after school. Children were also able to bring in a £1 and wear a green accessory, in addition to their school uniform, to support the charity’s colour. We were overwhelmed with everyone’s kind donations of money and cake and together we raised a fantastic £316! Thank you to everyone who came and supported Macmillan- it was a very enjoyable and successful afternoon.
November- Children in Need Spotacular!
We supported Children in Need 2016 by taking part in the 'Spotacular' event which was held across the nation. We all came dressed in as many spots as we could and the members of the School Council selected one person from each class to win a prize. Thanks to your generosity, we raised over £120!
December- Christmas Jumper Day for SMA!
On the 9th of December, we wore our best Christmas jumper to raise money for SMA- a charity close to our hearts. We raised over £110 and had lots of fun looking at the wide variety of jumpers in assembly.
March- Fair trade Fortnight 2017
Our School Council make up our school's 'Fair trade Team' which looks at ways of promoting Fairtrade products and principals across the school and wider community. To celebrate the annual Fair trade Fortnight event, we planned and led an assembly, set up a fair trade snack bar and held a fair trade bake sale which raised over £200 for the Fairtrade Foundation. All classes took part in activities across the two weeks to learn about fair trade.
March- Red Nose Day 2017
On Friday 24th March, we joined the nation and marked Red Nose Day by wearing a red item of clothing a long with an array of red noses in order to raise money for the charity. Children learnt about how their money can help others less fortunate than themselves. Thank you for your donations. We raised £115.
