"We are all friends and together we succeed"

Lord Mayor

In April we were visited by the Lord Mayor of Leeds! She came to deliver an assembly talking about what it was like to be a Mayor and what she had to do. The children really enjoyed her visit and she was impressed by the children’s behaviour. She’s invited all the children to enter a competition to come up with a fund raising idea to raise money for her charity – Candlelighters.  Candlelighters is a children’s cancer charity based in Leeds who support families facing children’s cancer across the entire region of Yorkshire. The children needed to either write a letter or design a poster showing what event they would organise in school to raise money.

Ethan Hudson in Year 4 was the worthy winner for his idea for a Games Fundraising Day in school.  Ethan, along with the runners up were invited to have a tour of the Civic Hall, followed by afternoon tea with the Lord Mayor.  This proved to be a very special day out.  Ethan's Games Fundraising Day will be held at school later in the year.  Well done winners!
