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

Friends of Stockbridge Primary Charity Vacancy

Friends of Stockbridge School (SC042765) is a small local charity with close links to Stockbridge Primary School and seeks to support learning and development opportunities for the school and its pupils through charitable fundraising and grant funding. The charity is currently seeking a new volunteer to replace an existing trustee who is standing down in the near future. The charity has 4 trustees in total.

We would welcome any volunteers from the Stockbridge area who are independent of the school (e.g. no current direct connection to the school) who would be interested in the role to contact the charity on info@friendsofstockbridgeschool.org.uk. The role would require attending approximately 4 trustee meetings each year and some limited other work between meetings to support the charity aims.
