Social Action – 2022/2023
Red Nose Day
Thank you for all the kind donations received on Friday 17th March for Red Nose Day. We are proud to share that we raised £127.67 for Comic Relief.
The children took part in a sponsored reindeer dash at school, raising much needed funds for the Butterwick Children’s Hospice. They all decorated their own reindeer masks for the occasion and, we are sure you will agree, all looked fantastic.
We are delighted to share that as a school we managed to raise an amazing £1,244 for the charity!
We would like to share with you the fantastic news that our donations to the Foodbank from our Harvest Festival weighed an amazing 60.7kg, which is an equivalent to 144 meals!!
Thank you to everyone who kindly donated
Our pupils share a real commitment to social action. One of our Y6 pupils designed these beautiful poppies and mobilised a workforce of Y5 and 6 pupils to spend their break times making them and selling them to school to raise money for the Poppy Appeal. She has shown great maturity in organising the manufacture and selling of the poppies all by herself. Thank you for your wonderful act of service and thanks to those who have helped you in your endeavour.
St Peter’s Elwick Church of England Primary School raised an amazing £248.89 for the Rotary Club’s Poppy Appeal Campaign and has won an award for the School that raised the most per pupil, achieving £2.42 per pupil. This is the second year running we have won this award!
MacMillan Coffee Morning
We were delighted with the support we have received for our Macmillan Coffee Morning! A big thank you to everyone who bought a raffle ticket, bought a cake or just made a donation. We managed to raise £255 for Macmillan which we think is fantastic for our little school.
Social Action – 2021/2022
Thank you to parents/carers who continue to donate uniform items which no longer fit their children. They are in pristine condition! Parents/carers can now take items from our clothing rack at any time, simply just call into the school office and they will be more than happy to share our stock with you. Alternatively, school will regularly display the uniform rack on the school yard so it is easy for parents /carers to access. This will be on a Monday after school.
Year 5 and 6 have chosen Butterwick Hospice for Children as our charity this year. This is close to our hearts as one of our former pupils, Will, spent a lot of time there. We know that Will’s family fully support the charity and wanted to help to show what a light Will was in our lives. Throughout the year we will be raising money for the charity. So far we have made £120.00.
We collect for the foodbank in Hartlepool throughout the year. At Harvest two pupils from Year 3 and 4 took our donations to the foodbank where they were able to see how the foodbank ran on a daily basis. Our donations helped the foodbank with an extra 150 meals this Autumn. Thank y ou to everyone who was kind enough to donate.
Junior Road Safety Officers
We have had some lovely weather recently and we are sure lots of you have been choosing to make the most of it and get outside for some exercise. Our Junior Road Safety Officers would recommend this website. It has lots of information, video clips and games to help you stay safe when crossing roads and when you are out and about on your bikes.
Children In Need 2021
Every year the children enjoying dressing up and taking part in activities for Children In Need. Donation buckets are in the school yard and we are grateful for all the donations! We raised a whopping amount of £145.31p. All the children looked great !
Reverse Advent Calendar
Thank you so much to our Parents /Carers for the donations towards our Reverse Advent Calendar and Toys for Town Donations
Previous Social Action
We are very proud of the social actions our school takes each year. In our Faith Journey, each class raises money or awareness for causes that affect us not only in our village or town but country and the wider world. EYFS and Key stage one have already been involved in helping with Harvest while Year 3 and 4 are responsible for donations we get for the food bank. Year 5 and 6 have been involved with a new initiative from our church in collecting ‘Toys for town.’
With help from parents we have managed to raise money for charities chosen by BIG FISH group, and these are recorded on our Social Action board on our ‘Faith Garden’ wall so everyone can see. This includes ‘Toilet Twinning’ where we raised enough money to buy a toilet for a town in Myanmar.
