CHILDREN IN NEED : NOVEMBER 2016 UPDATE
Friday 18th Nov is Non-Uniform in exchange for a PTA Tombola gift.
Wear spotty clothes (if you want to be like Pudsey).
Bring 20p or more if you want to donate to 'Children in Need'.
Friday 18th November, is a PTA non uniform day as well as 'Children in Need' . Children can wear something spotty and there may also be a limited number of 'fruit cups' (fresh fruit pieces in a cup) on sale for 20p at playtime which some older children have organised as well as possibly a 20p tombola. Wearing spotty clothes on this day is totally optional; any cash donations are also optional because we know many families have already bought headbands and wristbands (still available) or donated in other ways to 'Children in Need'. However if your child brings 20p (or more) they may have a chance to buy a fruit cup to help us raise even more money. Thank you all for your generosity.
Don't forget, it's also our PTA non-uniform day on 18th November in exchange for any as new or new gifts including ornaments, CD's, new toys or almost new toys, jewellery or DVD's .
We will very soon be able to give you an update on the 2016 money raised for The British Legion too; once again many thanks for your generosity.
SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AT BT SCHOOL
Pupils at BT School are encouraged to be socially responsible through the teaching of our Christian values. In the classroom pupils understand the importance of showing RESPONSIBILITY and RESPECT to each other, but pupils are also taught about their wider opportunities as global citizens to work towards FAIRNESS and to show KINDNESS. Pupils who make an effort to show our Values in their school day to day life are rewarded with 'value beads'. Just ask any of our children and they'll explain.
Each year the School adopts one overall charity focus for our giving. Recent charities have included Myton Hospice, ShelterBox, Cardiac Risk in the Young, The Guide Dogs and The Royal British Legion. As well as raising money for these, we also encourage pupils to respond to local, national and international appeals and have recently supported Wear It Pink (Breast Cancer Awareness) and The Salvation Army (Leamington Churches' Food Bank) for Harvest in 2016.
Individual Classes also show their RESPONSIBILITY through their work in class; Year 3 recently raised £130 for people living in poverty in India and KS1 raised £438 for Marie Curie Nurses through growing daffodils.
We are also continuing to support ShelterBox who provide help to people around the world affected by disasters. You can track where in the world our 4 boxes are helping people on the ShelterBox website. Our own 4 boxes (track box: 5215) were most recently re-filled and sent to The Phillipines to assist people affected by flooding. Photos below show pupils with one of our Shelter Boxes before it was sent off.
