Feeling Good Week 15th – 19th June
Surrey’s Feeling Good Week and The Macmillan Dress up and Dance Day coincide this year during week 15th – 19th June. In addition, many of our pupils would like to hold some sort of celebration of the life of Sarah Kruger. We have combined these events, along with special lessons and events during this week.
Feeling Good Week is an annual awareness raising event that promotes the importance of good emotional health and well-being. This year's theme is 'Get up and grow!’ and will include discussing with children the importance of emotional and mental health, empowering them to know who to ask for help if and when it is needed and to enable them to develop positive coping strategies to deal with life events.
Charity Cake Sale Thursday 18th June
To conclude the week’s events, we would like to hold a cake sale to raise funds for the charity which supported Sarah and her family – The Royal Marsden. I know many Parents and Staff would like to bake and sell cakes to show their support.
Please bring your cakes to school (music room). Charlie and his friends will be in charge of the sale.
Macmillan Dress Up and Dance Friday 19th June
Macmillan provide information, practical advice and support for anyone affected by cancer and hold an annual fundraiser to raise much needed funds for their work. On Friday 19th June, we ask all children (and staff) to come to school in dance themed ‘mufti’ for a contribution of at least £1 to Macmillan. Anything goes as long as it fits with a dance theme!!!
This mufti day coincides with donations for the tombola for the Summer Fair,
Please bring a bottle or an item for the other tombola stalls – final article in the newsletter.
