UNCRC Article 12: Every child has a right to have a say in matters that affect them.
As you will know out Rights Respecting Champions thought it would be a great idea to get the children all on board with fundraising for the KS2 reading resources this Autumn term and to do this they thought a Sponsored read for all of the children to join in with would be amazing!
As Duty Bearers the staff set aside a week where the whole school could make a pledge for their read and try to raise as much money as possible. We got one of our favourite Authors on board too; Adam Bushnell, who kindly offered to sign bookmarks for all children who raised over £5 and give top prizes to the 3 children who raised the most.
It is fair to say that the teachers, champions and whole school were astounded when the sponsorships were handed in and money counted. Every child who took part exceeded all of our expectations and the total raised was UNBELIEVABLE – many children raised over £100 for completely their pledge!
As a school, we altogether raised; £2043 which is something that we are so proud of so THANK you so much for supporting us – we are getting to work ordering all of the books as we speak 🙂
