£££££ THE £5 CHALLENGE £££££
For the next month, the school will be bursting with junior entrepreneurs all competing to make the most profit before October 31st as the children take on the £5 challenge!
Headteacher Olga Jackson explains; “The £5 challenge is a bit of fun fundraising organised by ‘Friends of Thorneyholme School’ (FOTS) where each child has been given £5 and tasked with turning it into as much money as possible by the time they come back to school after Half Term.
“The funds will be returned to FOTS and will go towards their next planned project, which is an exciting new piece of outdoor play equipment for the children here at school.
“There will be a prize for the family that makes the most, and we’ve seen all sorts of initiatives already! From cooking apples, and alpaca muck, to temporary tattoos, sweet cones and friendship bracelets – the children are becoming expert salespeople.
“It’s a great way to get children involved in fundraising for FOTS, but there’s also no pressure. If families are too busy, they can simply return the original £5 on the 31st.
“So be warned, if you see a purple jumper approaching – you might be about to part with some hard earned cash! But rest assured it’s all for a good cause.”
