Puppy Party

Well done to our Y3 children and staff who planned and organised an amazing fundraising event this week – raising money to sponsor a guide dog.

This was the children’s idea after having our focus week on diversity and meeting a guide dog puppy.

A total of over £400 was raised during the afternoon.
