Whitley And Eggborough Community Primary School

Charity Work

At Whitley and Eggborough School, our work is linked with four chosen charities. These also link closely to our Dragon Points system:

 

  • Firedrake dragon - Red team

      Charity = Stop and Love

 

  • Lemisch dragon –Yellow team

    Charity = Save the Children

     

  • Masingi dragon –Green team

    Charity = Send a Cow

     

  • Anzu dragon – Blue team

    Charity = Springboard

 

 In order to support the charity, every Dragon Point that is earned is worth 1p. Each half term the points will be converted into cash.  Occasionally, we offer incentives to help the children earn more points, for example, 'Double Dragon Points' day.  The points will be awarded for Caring, Helping And Sharing and can be given by any adult in school throughout the day.

Our Little acts of Kindness

We raised a super £118.99 selling poppies this year for the Royal British Legion.

Taking part in this years Children in Need appeal everyone was invited to wear pyjamas to school.  During the morning we held 'Pudsey's big sleepover', the children enjoyed a whole school quiz and movie during the morning. We raised a fantastic £310.  Thank you and well done!

This Halloween we took part in the ‘Carve a Heart’ initiative run by the World Vision charity.  The idea was to carve a heart in a pumpkin and make it a lantern of hope.  Together we helped turn a night of fear into a night of hope for children living in the world’s hardest places.  We held a special assembly to light our pumpkins and used this time for reflection.

We held a Macmillan coffee afternoon on Friday 30th September.  Parents and friends of the school were welcome.  People donated cakes and buns to sell on the day.  We raised an amazing £356.00.  Thank you.
