School events 2020-2021
Harvest Festival 2020
This year we celebrated Harvest Festival together in school and collected food donations from parents and carers to donate to our local Food Bank. Cian and Ava met with the Food Bank representatives who collected the donations from school.
Hellow Yellow- Mental Health Day 2020
The school council organised a Hellow Yellow event where children attended school in yellow and we collected donations for the Young Minds charity.
Some Of Our Events - 19/20
We helped to organise the Harvest Festival that took place at Holy Cross Church. We asked families of the school to donate non-perishable foods to be passed onto Castleford Food Bank. The Student Council commented"we felt really proud that lots of food was donated for Harvest Festival.
Macmillan Coffee Morning
We helped to organise our Macmillan Cofee Morning, by asking for donations of cakes and buns to make our event a success. On the morning, we helped to sell buns, cakes and juice to the parents and children of our school. We raised a fantastic £337!
Children In Need
For Children In Need, we decided that all of the children should come to school in their pyjamas for a 50p donation. Thanks to the generosity of all of our families, we raised £108.70.
The British Royal Legion Poppy Appeal
We sold poppies to all of the children in our school, with all proceeds going towards The British Royal Legion Poppy Appeal.
Chocolate Hamper Raffle
We organised a Chocolate Raffle at Easter to raise money for school funds. We asked Parents and Carers for donations of chocolate, that Mrs Formby put into hampers, and sold the tickets for 50p. With the money that we raised we decided to buy new equipment for play time. Thank you to everyone who donated chocolate, bought tickets, and to Mrs Formby for making our hampers.
We organised a visit by the Mayor of Wakefield to Airedale Infant School. We welcomed the Mayor, he was then thoroughly entertained by the children's fantastic singing performance in assembly. Following this, the Mayor visited each class, where the children asked questions. The Mayor and his Mace Bearer Rob had lunch with the children and enjoyed the fantastic school dinners that we can offer. The children were polite, respectful and a credit to our school. It was a morning thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
Red Nose Day- Comic Relief Fund Raising
For Red Nose Day, we raised money by selling Red Noses and organising a 'wearing red' day for a 50p donation. We were over the moon that we raised an amazing £194.18 for Comic Relief. Thank you to all of the parents and children who supported this fantastic cause by buying Red Noses and wearing red.
We joined the Airedale Junior School Council, and spent the morning at Wakefield Town Hall visiting the Mayor in his parlour and attending a citizenship ceremony. At the ceremony we watched 29 people become British citizens. This was a really special morning to be apart of.
