Community Coffee Morning and Choir Carol Concert
On Thursday 17th December we opened our doors up to invite the local community in for a Christmas coffee morning, with ample mice pies of course! It was so wonderful to see so many of you here enjoying yourselves and having a good old chat. The school choir have been rehearsing a number of Christmas songs during their lunchtimes in order to perform at the coffee morning. I think you’ll all agree that the children were absolutely amazing and very professional. Congratulations to all of those who left with a wonderful prize from the raffle too. We all enjoyed the event so much, that we will most definitely be arranging more community events in the new year.
Summer Church Fete
In the Summer term, our school proudly supported the church fete in Cogenhoe. Our Year One children created beautiful welly animals, which were displayed for the community in the entrance to the church. Pupils from Years Three and Four also entertained the crowds at the event with their ballroom dancing skills.
Thank you to all the staff and pupils involved in the event.
The children and staff at the Future Leaders Underprivileged Children’s Centre in Accra, Ghana, were absolutely delighted to receive letters from the children of Cogenhoe School. Letters were written by children in each class when we had our Ghana Day last month. We were also able to send over some books and worksheets and they were very pleased with these and will put them to very good use. We intend to continue to support the UCC with fundraising during the next school year and further develop the relationship between our two schools. We are currently waiting for details of the child the school is sponsoring and will post information as soon as possible.
The children had a wonderful day learning about Ghana. Our visitor from the Underprivileged Children’s Centre in Ghana spoke to the children and visited them in their classroom, as they participated in lots of wonderful learning activities.
