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

P4 – 7 Sponsored Walk

Some pupils in the village of Mpeni in Malawi currently have to walk 6km to get to school and walk 6km to get back from school every day, as there are not enough classrooms at their local primary school. As such, we have decided to fundraise for additional classrooms. Each class has been participating in fundraising activities throughout the year, and we completed a sponsored walk.

On Wednesday 28th March Primary 4-7  classes completed a 12km sponsored walk. Thank you to Sainsbury’s for donating water and snacks to keep us going.

Thank you to all staff and parent helpers.

Take a look at the route we did twice: once in the morning and once and after lunch

Music & Munchies for Mpeni

As you may be aware, Stockbridge Primary School is working hard to raise money to help Mpeni Primary School build new classrooms. Primary 6 and 7 have decided to hold a ‘Music and Munchies for Mpeni.’ On Friday 24th November we will be serving tea and coffee and providing some musical entertainment from 11am to 12.15pm in the school hall. We would like to extend our invitation to all members of the Stockbridge community. If you would like to come along and support this great cause could you please fill in a slip which can be found outside the office detailing how many tickets you would like and the name and class of your child. This can be written on the back of the slips and placed in the box provided.
