Thank you to everyone in both schools who helped raise money for "Silly Sock Day" in order to raise money for Autism Awareness. Here are our two Year 6 Councillors proudly displaying our certificate of thanks.
Thank you for helping our school to support several different charities recently. The children managed to raise £218 for Comic Relief and £117 was raised, between both schools, for Silly Sock day in support of Autism Anglia. We have also managed to raise £136 by wearing bandanas and having silly hair in aid to raise awareness of brain tumours.
School Council members from both Tilney and Anthony Curton visited the Queen Elizabeth Hospital to present a cheque for the money we have raised recently.
Queen Elizabeth Hospital
Members of the school council from both Anthony Curton and Tilney All Saints visited the Children's Ward at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Kings Lynn. They were able to present them with a cheque for £1500! Thank you to everyone at both schools for their fundraising efforts over the last few months.
Some of us went along to Block Fen to present our cheque for £577! Kirstyn kindly showed us around and we got to meet lots of animals who are being cared for while they wait to find new homes.
We had a meeting with the Bishop of Ely when he came to visit

NON UNIFORM DAYS
School Council have asked if, each week, the class with the highest attendance can be allowed to come to school in non-uniform for one day only. I have agreed to their request.
Attendance at school is high, and I am delighted the children enjoy coming to school and want to be here.
Each Monday in assembly the classes with the highest attendance are announced and a class award is given. From Monday , the class with the highest attendance will also be allowed to wear non uniform on the Tuesday, if parents or carers agree. This is not compulsory – and appropriate clothing and footwear should be worn.
Families will be notified by text on the Monday if their child is in the “winning” class. A class photo will then also be displayed on the TV system for that week.
I do hope you will allow your child to join in the fun.
(on behalf of School Council)
