Pupil-led Building the Kingdom projects


EASTER EGG APPEAL: In March 2023, Year 1 were learning all about the Alice Charity. The children decided that they would like to donate Easter Eggs for children who might not get one. As a school, we collected over 100 eggs! Thank you for your wonderful idea Year 1, and to all who donated!

EARTHQUAKE SUPPORT: In February 2023, Year 5 were saddened by the news of the devastating earthquakes affecting Turkey and Syria. They decided to sew some items, which they could sell, in order to raise money. They raised £190. The money has been donated to CAFOD, who are currently using donations to provide shelter, food, water and winter kits to survivors. Thank you to Year 3 and 4, who donated and bought the items. We have many very generous and thoughtful children in our school .

SEA SAVERS: In Autumn 2022, a group of Year 4 children were concerned about plastic pollution in the oceans, and started to research how we could help. They planned, organised and led a 'Wear Something Blue' day and bake sale in school, raising £278.65 for the Marine Conservation Society. They were then visited by a Marine Biologist, Courtney French, who talked to them about the difference that their money would make and the work that is being done to protect our seas. 


HELPING THE UKRAINE: A group of our amazing Year 5 pupils wanted to help the aid organisations supporting the huge number of refugees forced from their homes in the Ukraine.
They organised a stall, selling cakes, cookies and bracelets on Monday 21st for Years 3,4,5 & 6 and Wednesday for Reception, Years 1 & 2. I know we'll want to support these amazing girls who are all demonstrating the real spirit of St Wulstan's.  
WEAR A HAT DAY: On Friday 25th March 2022, some Year 6 pupils chose to organise and held a special day to support the charity Brain Tumour Research. The day was a non-uniform day for everyone and pupils came into school wearing a hat. The group of pupils created their own marketing video for Facebook to spread the message!
There was also a chance to buy ‘Wear a Hat Day’ wrist bands and badges for 20p!
This charity is a charity very close to our hearts here at St Wulstan's, and the pupils wanted to do something to support all of the fantastic work that the scientists are doing. 

Food Bank Appeal - June 2022: Our amazing Year 4s launched an appeal for the Newcastle Foodbank to help children and families over the Summer Holidays. This resulted in lots of donations to support local people over the Summer break, which were donated to The Alice Pantry. Well done girls!
