Pupil community group


The Pupil Community Group gives children a chance to have their voices heard and opinions valued.

Over Autumn Term 1 we considered different charities that we could raise money for and thought of ideas of how to do this.

As a group we decided to raise money for Louie's Pace. Louie is a sibling of one of the pupil's in our school so this is a charity close to our hearts. To find out more information on the charity, please follow TeamLouieGeorge on - Facebook @teamlouiegeorge, Twitter  @teamlouiegeorge and Instagram Louie's pace a warriors tale.

As it is Harvest time, children have been learning about harvests around the world and people less fortunate than ourselves. We have been learning about Fairtrade and how we can support farmers in other countries. By buying Fairtrade products, we ensure farmers get a fair price. Our local supermarket (the Co-op) are a Fairtrade supermarket and have kindly offered to support our fundraising ideas.

The Pupil Community Group had their first trip to the Co-op on Tuesday 2nd October to buy Fairtrade products with money donated from all the staff at Mapplewell Primary. The products that we bought with the money raised was used to create a Fairtrade harvest hamper.

To support our fund raiser and be in with a chance of winning the Fairtrade Harvest Hamper then please purchase a raffle ticket. Tickets are £1 a strip The winner will be drawn on Tuesday 16th October during the Pupil Community Group after school club.


Thank you for supporting the Pupil Community Group and 'Louie's Pace'. Thank you to everyone that purchased a raffle ticket on Tuesday the 9th October. If you have not yet purchased a ticket, there will be another opportunity. Mrs Abbott will be selling raffle tickets in the key Stage One playground on Tuesday 16th October before and after school. All money raised for the raffle with be donated to Louie's Pace.

Once again, a big thank you to everyone that supported the pupil community group's fundraising by buying a raffle ticket. It is greatly appreciated. We managed to raise £72 which will be donated to Louie's Pace.

The winner of the raffle was Mrs Lawrence. Well done, it was certainly well deserved. Mrs Lawrence has shown lots of support to the charity by buying lots of raffle tickets and donating money towards the hamper, in fact, as a kind gesture she actually offered to donate the hamper. What a lovely lady!
