Over the past month, some of the students at Almondsbury C of E Primary School have been busy preparing for a monumental fundraising event.
Amelia Griffiths, Dilly King, George Wrigley and Gabi White have been creating an impressive amount of potted, colourful slime. Using ingredients bought with the support of others and with their very own pocket money, they have spent many hours of their time, just to support a worthy cause.
All of the money raised from selling the slime will be put towards making a sensory room, so that children with additional needs can benefit from their own purposefully designed space. Leading this forward-thinking idea is the school’s special educational needs coordinator, Mrs Jo Duffy.
On the last week of term 4, these inspirational students sold their handmade, creative products outside the school library, where other students were able to purchase them for various prices.
Headteacher Mr Smith commented:
“We are so proud that the children are using their initiative to support our fundraising efforts in this way.”
