Red Nose Day – Friday 15th March

It’s Red Nose Day next Friday 15th and our school will be taking part.

Children are encouraged to come to school wearing red and/or Comic Relief Merchandise, with crazy hair if you wish, for a £1 donation to Comic Relief.

We will be selling noses from Monday until Thursday next week at a cost of £1.25. PLEASE BRING THE CORRECT CHANGE IF YOUR CHILD WOULD LIKE A NOSE. If you have a child in Early Years or Key Stage one, please send the correct change in an envelope clearly stating that the money is for a nose and indicating your child’s name and class.

We are also holding a Red Nose Day Bake Sale on the day, as every child is welcome to buy a cake, we do need lots of volunteer bakers (shop bought is also fine). We would love your donations of cakes and bakes which may be brought to the Rockpool from school pick up on Thursday 14th March or on the morning of the 15th. Cakes will cast 50p each.

Many thanks for supporting this event, we look forward to sharing our photos from this day with you next week.
