Where will you read yours?
Operation Christmas Child
At Carr Hill we encourage children to think of those who are less privileged than themselves, so once again we are supporting the Samaritan’s Purse, ‘Operation Christmas Child Project.’
The project sends Christmas gifts in shoe boxes to children in hospitals, orphanages, Internally Displaced Persons Camps, homeless shelters and impoverished neighbourhoods in the poorest parts of the world.
Children don’t need to fill an entire shoebox themselves but can donate single items if they wish to and will be gratefully received. More details can be obtained from the School Office.
Hopefully we will beat last year’s wonderful total of 117 boxes.
Completed boxes and donated items are to be at school by Wednesday 16th November.
KS1 Multi Skills Festival at the Elizabethan
The children from Carr Hill had a fantastic morning at the KS1 multi skills festival at the Elizabethan. The children were split into small groups and then were taught a selection of skills by the Elizabethan pupils. The activities which the children took part in included balancing, throwing, catching and relay type games. The children really enjoyed the morning and listened really carefully to advice they were given from the older children who ran the sessions.
Macmillan Coffee Morning
Thank you to everyone who supported our ‘Macmillan Coffee Morning’ on Friday 23rd September. The dining hall was full of parents, carers, relatives, teaching staff and pupils and it was a wonderful atmosphere in which delicious cakes and tasty treats were enjoyed.
Well done to the various winners on the raffle and other competitions which were organised. Prizes have been delivered to the relevant winners to be sent home.
An amazing £379 was raised for such a wonderful and worthwhile charity.
Our thanks to everyone who donated cakes and raffle prizes, and for those who gave up their time to help organise the event. Also to ‘Sweet Candy Cart Hire’ who donated the use of their sweet cart for the event.
Ranby House Cross Country
On the 20th September 2016, nine children from Carr Hill Primary school took part in a 1300m cross country race at Ranby House. The weather was damp and drizzly but this did not affect the morale or determination of these aspiring athletes. A huge well done to the Cross Country Team for completing this race and serving Carr Hill proudly!
