Cumbria Bright Stars Competition

Our Year 6 children were delighted to be able to present a cheque for £319.40 to Poverty Swap.  This represented 50% of the money they raised as part of their Bright Sparks initiative.  A brilliant amount which was reflective of the hard work and commitment shown by the Year 6 children.


We are now in week three of the Year 6 Bright Stars project, which will run until March. The  children have been working hard to raise money and have been involved in leading, designing and planning events towards that goal. The final total will be split between school and the school’s two chosen charities.

As part of the project the children have arranged (as well as other fund raising events):


· three bake stalls

· three Bright Stars Discos, (don’t forget to buy your tickets for the event on Thursday)

· two car washes

· a raffle


We are delighted with all the support that  the children have received and would encourage you to buy some of the lovely cakes that will be on sale after school on Monday in the cloakroom porch area.
