Christmas 2022 Fundraiser
Our Christmas Fair is back! The children and Teachers run the Christmas Fair as an Enterprise Event in which the children design and make items to sell or games to play. The children prepare amounts for floats, prizes and winnings, they set up and tidy away their own stalls and games. All the takings are counted and the money re-distributed evenly to all classes from Nursery to Y6 for the children to decide on what they would like to spend their funds to improve their classroom and learning.
In addition, the PTFA run refreshments and this year we will be selling the Tea Towels. Our Governors run a raffle.
Funds raised are currently going towards new resources in each curriculum area to assist all children in the school, and we are looking into upgrading our outdoor adventurous astro-turfed areas for Nursery, EYFS and KS1 Pupils.
Thank you for your support!
PTFA Whole School Collaborative Collage Project
Parents, teachers, friends and children of Hathersage St. Michael’s CE (A) Primary School have worked hard to ensure this socially distanced, collaborative collage project came to fruition during the Covid period.
A professional designer outlined a picture of our school in it’s beautiful setting. This was enlarged and made into a grid. The grid was cut up into numbered sections which matched a pre-coloured replica. Every child in the school was given a numbered square which they needed to locate on the grid and colour accordingly. The grid was then carefully pieced together until the full picture emerged.
The effect is a bright, colourful, unique collage picture, showcasing every child as an individual who is a member of our whole school family.
Look out for this amazing collage in school.
