For many years, Ms Carolyn Anstruther, DHT P1-3 , has worked with P3 pupils and their Class Teachers to lead an annual whole school Harvest Appeal. This means that every year group currently in our school, from P3-P7, has had an opportunity to lead a whole school event.
Ms Antsruther often alternates support one year for a UK charity and the following year an International Charity:
2012 Send A Cow to Africa
2013 Edinburgh North West Foodbank
2014 Edinburgh North West Foodbank
2015 Mercy Corps Appeal for Syrian Refugees
2016 Foodbank WE Scare Hunger
2017 Send A Cow to Africa
Each appeal has been a huge success, not only in fundraising, but in providing our pupils an opportunity to develop as local and global, responsible citizens. A particular highlight was raising funds for 9 playgrounds for Syrian refugees with City of Edinburgh partner charity (and close neighbour) Mercy Corps, as a way of sharing opportunities with others in the year our new playground was launched.
P3 Appeal for Playgrounds for Syrian Refugees
At special Assemblies with Mercy Corps on Thursday 1st October, P3 pupils will tell the school about their Harvest project to help Syrian refugees.
The P3 Communications Group met on Wednesday and this is how they explained the project in their own words:
Primary Three are trying to raise money for Mercy Corps to help Syrian children who are refugees. There is a war in Syria and lots of people have lost their homes. Refugees are people who are trying to find a safe place to live. We are lucky to have lots of things to play with in our playground. We want to help children in refugee camps. We want to give them their own playground. A playground costs £300.
We have decorated envelopes and everyone will get one. Please put some money in your envelope and bring it back to school. We will collect the envelopes from the classes. Everyone in P3 has a different job to do. Some people are envelope collectors, some people are money counters and some people are going to talk at Assembly to tell everyone about our project.
Thank you from The P3 Communications Team
Look out for more information from the team!
