The children entertained over 120 people with their spectacular Christmas production of 'Straw and Order'. They sang beautifully and the soloists (Amalie, Iyla and Zeenat) were mesmerising. The audience thoroughly enjoyed it as much as the children enjoyed performing it. They worked so hard learning their parts with fantastic results. Staff, family and friends are rightly proud of every single performance.
FORS raised over £250.00 which will go directly to the children, providing them with a wide range of enrichment activities. FORS also very kindly made a donation to St John’s church for allowing us to use their splendid venue.
It was great to see all the children in their Christmas jumpers today, in support of ‘Save the Children’. The school looks incredibly festive and we raised £47 for charity.
The staff, governors and children all enjoyed a delicious Christmas lunch yesterday. Christmas is the only time in the year when we all dine together, which is a very special experience for all involved. The children then enjoyed a very well deserved party, with a magical visitor from the North bearing gifts. Thank you to FORS for providing the ‘pass the parcels’ and prizes.
It was lovely to see so many family and friends in church to share in, and celebrate, the children’s achievements and successes this term. Congratulations to all those children who received an award. It was wonderful to see the wide range of achievements and awards being presented, we are very fortunate to have so many talented children here at Roughlee. A special mention must be made to all the children for their outstanding singing; they were magnificent! The Rotary Club also presented our Year 5 and 6 children with certificates and badges, as we set up our own RotaKids Club in school.
