Over the summer term the Federation School Council have been working hard on generating ideas for fundraising events. The council were asked to come up with some ideas to help raise money for an exciting new project for the school – an outside reading den! This den will be for the children to use as a quite reading area during break and lunchtimes. It will also be a lovely location for a class story.
The children gathered ideas during their class council feedback time and brought these to the meetings where we discussed them and considered the practicalities of each one. Over two meeting the council created quite an extensive list for future events but decided on holding a ‘Used Book Sale’ before the end of the summer term.
The children sent an email out asking for second hand book donations to come into school and then sorted them out into Infant and Junior books. All books were priced at 20p, 50p and £1.
We were overwhelmed by the generous donations we received and as a result were able to hold the book sale over three consecutive days! Some of the school council members helped to run the stalls.
A grand total of £291.81 was raised. Thank you to everyone who donated and bought a book!
