A huge 'THANK YOU' for all your kind and generous donations for our local foodbank in Rochdale, the project was a great success.

Each member introduced themselves and explained their roles to Mr Hardiker, Rochdale Foodbank Warehouse Manager. Thank you Mr Hardiker, Mrs Entwistle, staff and volunteers for working with our team and long may your valued work continue.

Spring Term 2

We have been working with our Chaplaincy Team to raise awareness and funds for the people of Turkey and Syria after the devastating earthquakes that happened 6th February 2023. We have teamed up with the Disaster Emergency Committee and created a JustGiving page. We have raised, with your kind donations, £154.00 in total. A big THANK YOU to all our families and friends and for your continuous support.

Summer Term 1 and 2 - 2023

We have been working in partnership with Rochdale Foodbank to create A4 posters to be displayed at the Rochdale unit situated in our town centre. We decided to co-ordinate a whole school competiiton, we had lots of fabulous entries. Mrs Nightingale had a tough job choosing the 10 winners. Each winner received a set of art pencils and sketch book. Congratulations to all our winners. (We are the first school in the Borough to be asked to produce posters to be displaced by the Foodbank).

Our final project this year has been to co-ordinate the 'Children's Champion and Deputy Champion Ballot box.' We planned a short presentation to reveal the candidates. We were thrilled to announce one of our children in Year five - Lena, successfully got through to the final 12. Unfortunately, not this time for Lena.

We wish good luck for next year!

This year we have successfully completed 9 projects, raised awareness and funds for a local, national and international charities totalling £598.00.

Congratulations and very well done to this year's team on your very successful year.
