At Foster’s, we believe that it vitally important to take the time to put the needs of others before our own.
We recognise how important charity is to our pupils and parents, so raising money for charity has become a real focus of ours. We are tremendously proud of all we have achieved and have seen the positive impact it has had on the moral of the school.
On Thursday 16th March 2017, Lilly, Abbie, Sophie and Tolu organised a sponsored walk for Cancer Research. They recognised it was an issue that touched so many lives in the families at Foster’s Primary school. Their aim was to raise £250. Everyone had great fun on the day and came together to blow their target out of the water. Altogether, the Key Stage 2 children raised an astounding………£ 4785.28!!!
On Friday 24th March 2017, we celebrated Red Nose Day in style! We all paid £1 and really enjoyed a CRAZY HAIR DAY to raise money for COMIC RELIEF. The School Council children sold hundreds of red noses and we were delighted to donate £620.22 to this excellent cause.
See how the money helped:
Children In Need
We supported CHILDREN IN NEED during the week beginning 14th November 2016.
School Council pupils sold Pudsey merchandise throughout the week. On the Friday, we had a SPOTACULAR DAY where we wore our spottiest clothes and Mr Darroch delivered an assembly talking about the difference that our money makes to others.
We were very proud to raise a total of £918.57.
See how this money helped change lives:
In December Year 3 & 4 pupils, school choir and staff joined other schools in the Demelza Carolathon in Bexleyheath. We had a fantastic time singing to an eager audience
They helped raised £724.30.
Macmillan Cancer Support
On the 5th October 2016, new families to the school were invited to a WELCOME INFORMATION COFFEE morning.
As well as meeting staff, education and health professionals we also enjoyed the splendid cakes baked by the staff.
The coffee morning raised an excellent £141.70 for MacMillan Nurses.
The Poppy Appeal
During November 2016, we supported the BRITISH LEGION POPPY APPEAL.
Key stage 2 children sold poppies for us to wear and Mr Fletcher gave a special assembly about Joseph Harding, a boy from Foster’s school who served our country.
This meant that we raised £74.50 for the cause. Well done!
