NSPCC – Juniors and Year 7 ‘Super Spellers’

The NSPCC visited our school on Thursday 28th April 2016 and delivered their Speak out Stay safe assembly to share information with the Juniors and Year 7 about how they can keep themselves safe from harm and get help if they have any worries.

I am delighted to say that Ramillies supported the valuable work of the NSPCC by taking part in a fundraising event, a sponsored spell. The children challenged themselves with individual spellings and gained sponsors. They did brilliantly! Not only did they rise to the challenge of learning complex spellings but to collect as many sponsors as they could too. In total they raised £520.80 which is an awesome achievement for the 17 children who took part. This will make a difference for the NSPCC’s vital work, helping to keep even more children safe. A special mention has to go to the two top ‘earners’, Harvey who raised £100 and Jake £96.50 – both boys were determined to collect as much as they could and they certainly achieved this. Helen, from the NSPCC, was touched by the children’s response and said that giving out the badges, in last Thursday’s assembly, was a pleasure. The children are showcasing their coloured badges which represent the number of sponsors gained – some have all 4 and you will see them proudly pinned to their blazers!

Well done to the Juniors and Year 7 – a fine job for a worthy cause. Thank you for your time, effort and support.
