Dare To Be Different

26th May 2022



On Thursday the 26th May we asking you to celebrate you, and all that makes you unique – all the details are on the poster below. Children should wear school uniform unless they are swapping their t-shirt for their own. You can choose one thing for 50p or a list of things up to the cost of £2 to make you unique. From making your hair red (or blue if you insist), to having sparkles in your hair and a body full of temporary tattoos, wear odd socks or even odd shoes – the choice is yours.


All we ask is that children remember that they are in school, therefore NO jewellery is allowed, and sensible shoes are a must.


Thank you for your continued support it really is appreciated.

Well done to Charlotte from Reception for baking all of these cakes and selling them to raise a fantastic £63! Thank you Charlotte, it looks like you've been very busy and the cakes look delicious!



FOWSA are really impressed with Emilia from Reception who is in training for her sponsored exercises! Well done Emilia, we can't wait to see how you get on!
