55 students from Classes 4, 5, 6 and 7 managed to raise a wonderful £1100 for children with serious illnesses by taking part in Readathon last month. The children set themselves a reading goal (anything from two chapters to twenty books), got sponsors, did the reading over half term and then collected in the money. Readathon, which is organised by Scholastic, raises money for CLIC Sargent Children’s Cancer Charity, Readwell (which buys reading books for children in long term hospital care) and Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.
I am absolutely delighted and would like to congratulate all the children who took part. Special mention should go to Tara in Class 5, and Allie and Emily in Class 4 who each raised over £50!
