The recent sponsored skipping event was a huge success in Marnel this Spring. All of the children enjoyed learning new skills and skipping styles in preparation for the main event at the end of April/beginning of May. They all took part enthusiastically, and in doing so raised a huge amount of money for both the school and an important charity, the British Heart Foundation. In total we raised £3200 which is an incredible achievement! Our school keep 20% of this, which will be put to good use buying new playground equipment and resources. Those children who raised over £50 sponsorship money will receive a digital skipping rope as a thank you from the charity, and all who participated will be awarded a certificate. As soon as these arrive, the children will bring these home. On behalf of all the staff, I would like to say a massive thank you to all the parents and children who helped to make this a worthwhile fundraising event.
