Festive Jumper Day



to everyone who came to school today wearing their festive jumper and donated £1.

We raised a massive £263.10! 


All money raised will be divided equally between Save the Children and St Gemma’s Hospice.



Meeting – 6th December

This afternoon, School Council talked about the forthcoming Festive Jumper Day (Monday 11th December) and also completed evaluation forms for Leeds City Council Health & Wellbeing Department following the Recycling Workshop that the councillors had recently attended.

It was also last meeting before the Christmas holidays so School Council decided to pose for a silly photo.

Next meeting Wednesday 10th January 2018.

Takeover Challenge at MAECare

This afternoon, Noven, Kacey and Sophie spent the afternoon at the MAECare (Moor Allerton Eldery Care) offices. After a tour of the building they set to work making cups of tea and coffee for the staff and preparing the activity room ready for the arrival of the Knitting Group members.

They met and greeted the members, made them drinks, took the register and completed a range of other tasks and even so still found the time to make some pom poms and eat chocolate biscuits!


Takeover Day Interviews

Thank you to everyone who applied for a job and to be part of Takeover Day.

This year 118 children applied and it was a very hard task over the weekend to create a shortlist. There were so many well presented applications but unfortunately not everyone can be interviewed for jobs.

The list of children that have been shortlisted is up in the KS2 block near the classrooms of Year 5. Please check for your name and the day that you will have your interview.

Good Luck!
