A BIG thank you.
The Children's Council would like to thank everybody who has supported their charity this past year. We have raised a record amount of £1182.16 so far this year from events such as HDGT, raffle prizes, dress up days and our curry event.
This is the most that we have raised as a school so far for a particular charity.
Dress Up Day January 31st 2020.
To raise money for our chosen charity Diabetes UK, the Children's Council would like to host a Dress Up Day. Each child who participates is asked to donate £1 which will go directly to the charity.
We are asking all children to dress up in either Orange, Blue or White to represent the colours of Diabetes UK.
If your child is choosing not to participate, then we ask them to wear normal school uniform.
No football shirts allowed.
An amazing 40 children, who were representing 18 different charities, gave presentations this afternoon to their peers. The Children's Council met to decide on what charity HDGT was going to support through it's fundraising.
Charities, both local and on a wider scale, were represented with key figures, video links and heartfelt pleas being used.
All of the children were extremely articulate.
The children also need recognition for the lunchtimes that they had sacrificed in order to create their posters and Power Points. Well done to everyone who was involved.
Mrs Massey and the Year 6 teaching team were very proud of you all.
Have a look at the images below and please do spend some time looking at the presentations that they children gave.
On Friday 11th January 2019, we will be holding our Peter Pan dress up day.
Great Ormond Street Hospital are heavily sponsored by J. M Barrie's Peter Pan and the children would like to continue this theme.
The Children's Council would like you to dress up as Peter Pan himself, Hook, a lost boy, Tinkerbell, Wendy, Peter or John or maybe even the crocodile for the day. A £1 donation will help sponsor medical research, equipment and valuable time of the dedicated staff at GOSH.

Many of the children this year wanted to inspire others to choose their charity. There were many presentations, but only one could be chosen as the Howe Dell's Got Talent charity ready for Spring 2018. Above you can see you slides that the children created, as well as the pictures of them during the voting event.
Well done to all the children who took part in presenting to their peers and for giving such passionate reasons as to why we should support that charity.
