During this time of Lent, St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School raises funds for charities overseas. This year, we are supporting – Kiroho Charity in Thigio and the Daughters of Charity in Ethiopia. It has been lovely seeing the children of all ages skip and become innovative with skipping techniques as well. All classes have been so enthusiastic and keen to skip each day that it has turned into a frenzy between all the key stages as the class who skips the most by the end of the event will win the coveted prize – some lovely PE equipment for their class.
We are only half way through the event, and yet the grand total for skips across the school has quickly surpassed 60, 000 skips! Stay tuned to see how much the entire school has raised for the two charities, as well as how many skips we have managed to do in one week!
