P7 Leavers Hoodies

Primary 7 have decided they would like leavers hoodies to help them commemorate their time here at Stockbridge Primary school. If you follow the link below you can pick the type of hoodie, colour and size. You then proceed to check out via the website. Once I have received the orders the hoodies will be made and sent to the school.

Please note that this has to be done by Wednesday 13th June to ensure we have enough time to get the hoodies printed and delivered.

Thanks for your support,

Sponsored Walk Grand Total

I am delighted to announce that our sponsored walk for Mpeni raised an astounding £3772.93!!!!

When this is added to our fundraising from earlier in the year our grant total comes to £7890.19!  This includes an extra £110 raised by Okko, Valo, Suzanne and Paul through a toy sale they organised in their weekend.

I  am so grateful and proud of the effort made by everyone in the school community to help our friends in Mpeni.  We are hoping that the additional money raised will be able to support the building of additional resources for the school.  We are in discussions with the Mpeni school community regarding the best use of the funds.

Thank you!

Best wishes,

Faye Calder-Kelly
