2015 Spring Term Fundraising
In the Spring term, the School Council organised a Cake Sale to raise money for the Restricted Growth Association (RGA) a charity which one of the pupils at the school is closely associated with.
The cake sale was held on the day of the annual Easter Show performance. Also on show for the parents to admire whilst munching their cakes was the Take One Picture School Art Exhibition, where the children's themed artwork from across the school was displayed around the hall.
The cakes were lovingly made by Cookery Club, teachers, pupils and classes from nursery-Y6 and everything from chocolate cakes to Easter biscuits were on sale for only 20p!
A roaring success, the cake sale raised £276 for the RGA thanks to the hard work of the West Drayton School and Community.
Many thanks to all involved.
At West Drayton Primary School, we pride ourselves on having an outward-looking approach where we constantly seek to help and support those in less fortunate positions than ourselves.
Every year, we select and fundraise for 3 charities; a local, national and an international charity. One charity is chosen in turn each term and a whole school fundraising event is held for the school to participate in. The School Council meets to decide on a fundraising event which they then plan and help to run.
