Everyone dressed in yellow and blue and children spent time creating artwork to send a message of hope and love to those in Ukraine which were shared on social media.

The whole school enjoyed having an extended playtime together whilst the cake stall took place and they even took part in a sponsored silence during their lunch break, before ending the day together with a collective worship.

The Charity committee did an outstanding job of getting prepared and helping out throughout the day to ensure that it was the school's most successful charity event yet.
