The Great Big Sleepover

What a wonderful end to the week we had last night. Years 4,5 & 6 were invited to a sleepover at the school, raising money for CAFOD. A vast range of activities were put on for the children by the staff. The children were kept extremely busy, in the hope that this would tire them out!!


The evening ended with a selection of campfire songs before bedtime. Some children began to drop off to sleep about 12:00, if not before, while the extremely energetic finally gave up about 2:00 am, only to be woken by the early sun at 5:15! It felt like we had only just closed our eyes!


The children were fantastic and extremely well behaved. A big thank you for all your donations for the sleepover. A grand total of £825 was raised for CAFOD. A big thank you to all the staff who gave up their Thursday evening to look after the children. A very special thank you to the teachers that ‘slept over’


 For some children it was the first sleepover that they had been on. For all of the children and staff, it was an opportunity to help those less fortunate than themselves. A great big thank you, once again, for supporting this very worthwhile cause.


Thank you also to the rest of the school for supporting our Mufti day donating £1 to CAFOD. A total of £85 was raised. 


This means a grand total of £910 has been raised for CAFOD – well done everyone.
