Compton CE Primary School held a Local Charity Week to raise vital funds for the Alexander Devine Childrens Hospice Service. Through a variety of activities organised by each class we raised an amazing £351.20.
The week began with a dressing up day organised by Elm Class. The pupils came dressed as either a film or book character. There were some amazing costumes and prizes were given out by Elm Class. The winners were: Joe, Beatrice, Bessie, Harry R, Charlie, Oscar, Alice and the staff prize was awarded to Mrs Martin. This was followed by Hazel and Beech classes setting up a cake sale on Tuesday – thank you to parents for all the yummy donations. On Thursday Oak and Willow classes organised some mini stalls of name the teddy, number of sweets in the jar, and find the treasure on the map. Finally on Friday Sycamore and Maple classes ran some very active activities at lunchtime. These were Welly wanging, hula hooping, Velcro target, speed bounce, beat the goalie and skipping . Prizes were awarded for the highest scores by age group. Alexander Devine Childrens Hospice have sent us a thank you email already for the amazing £351.20 and a certificate will soon be with us. Thank you to the parents and children for supporting this event and for the teachers for organising another great week at Compton Primary School.
