Thank you to everyone who donated money on the last day before half term. It is touching to see that even in these times of uncertainty for all of us, our school community continues to support those in need; we raised £765.50 for Show Racism the Red card. The pupils looked fabulous in red!
We are aware that the school we are supporting in Birmingham is desperately short of books. We will pass on any story books that you would like to give, in good condition, suitable for all ages from Reception – Year 6. Please bring them in next Friday, as detailed below.
Friday 13 November – The Warwick Prep Donation Day & Crazy Hair
We will be ready and waiting under the canopy to collect your donated items at drop off next Friday morning.
- For Save the Children we are collecting trainers, football / rugby boots and sports kit & equipment, to be passed on to child refugees in Coventry. This is a house competition, can your house collect the biggest pile?
- For the school in inner-city Birmingham we are collecting children’s winter coats, and fiction books as detailed above.
- For Children in Need we are inviting the children (& staff!) to go wild with their hair. The suggested donation for this event is £2.00, which will be collected by form teachers. Children must wear normal school uniform (or PE kit if it is their PE day).
Children in Need drawing competition
This is the last call for entries in our exciting art competition. Can you draw your favourite teddy, or design a completely new one, to be a friend for Pudsey Bear?
This is open to all our pupils, including Nursery. Mrs. Hemming will select a winner from each year group and small prizes will be awarded. Please give your entry to your form teacher, in a sealed envelope with £1.00 entry fee, by Monday 9 November at the latest. Winners will be announced on Friday 13 November.
Sasha in Year 4 has filled a shoebox with Christmas gifts for a child who would otherwise not receive anything. If you are considering filling a shoebox this Christmas, you may like to know that the Leamington based charity Helping Hands are appealing for shoeboxes containing gifts for adults who are homeless or in vulnerable accommodation. Full details are on their website. The shop & cafe will be closed for lockdown, but they will be accepting shoeboxes from 2 - 10 December.
Warwick Hospital art competition
Our friends at Warwick Hospital have asked us to let you know about their Christmas art competition.
Please note that if you do take part in this we cannot collect your entries; scans or photos of the artwork need to be submitted directly to the hospital.
