Children have spook-tacular time raising school funds
8:50am Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
TEACHERS and children at Ombersley Endowed First School and Nursery had a scream this Halloween as the dressed up to raise cash.
Youngsters dressed as witches, monsters and ghouls to raise funds that will help buy additional reading resources for the school.
The youngsters had a spooky time playing Halloween games with prizes for the most creative costumes.
“It was fantastic to see everyone getting into the spirit of Halloween and having so much fun. What a wonderful way to end our first half term of the year,” said Mrs Caroline Moore, headteacher at the school.
She added: “Thanks to the efforts of The Friends of Ombersley School, staff and parents, the event raised over £230 which will go towards extra phonics resources. Thank you to everyone involved in organising the event and for donating so many delicious cakes.”
Since the start of the new term, with the help of staff and parents, events organised by The Friends of Ombersley School have raised more than £500. Every penny raised helps pay for additional equipment and activities for the children, which cannot be funded by the school budget.
The group will have a stall selling sweets and other treats at the Ombersley Cricket Club Bonfire on Tuesday, November 5.
