At Butts Primary School, we pride ourselves on raising awareness through fundraising events.
We have raised the profile of dementia across our school. We have fundraised for the Alzheimer's Society through our cake-sales. We are extremely grateful for the cakes that were baked and sold as we know our children, parents, staff and our community work together to support each other. Alongside the fundraising events, KS2 children took part in a 'Dementia workshop' with Queen Mary's Grammar School and became 'Dementia Friends'.
Year 6 created some spectacular pieces of writing linking how the brain works and the effects of dementia.
Being part of a caring and loving community matters to us. Staff and pupils have raised awareness and money for Cancer related charities. Pupils released balloons with inspirational messages attached, with the aim to spread positive messages to wider communities on World Cancer Day.
Many thanks to all the parents/carers who support our Macmillan Coffee Mornings.
Pupils and staff enjoy planning this event. Pupils prepare tables, wash crockery, design and display the bunting for the classroom; design and create a 'Welcome' poster; organise the food and drinks and serve the guests. They were also the most hospitable hosts - ensuring that everyone had a great time.
Every year our school community raises money for Children in Need. We are all looking forward to taking on the next SPOTacular challenge.
