It's a great village school

Has our school been forgotten? Looking through the Journal, I saw all the other schools which did fund-raising for Red Nose Day.

Has our school been forgotten? Looking through the Journal, I saw all the other schools which did fund-raising for Red Nose Day.Well, Otterton Church of England Primary School also did fund-raising for Red Nose Day Everyone went into school dressed in their PJs - even the teachers.Could you imagine driving to school? What if they had to stop and get out of their cars? What would people think? Well, Red Nose Day was about doing something funny for money - and they did.It was fantastic seeing the whole school joining in to raise money for such a great cause. We are all aware of how tight money can be, but think of people far worse off in the countries that Red Nose Days help. We also had a cake stall after school, even though we are a healthy-eating school. So, after selling out of every cake, I would like to say thank you to everyone who brought in cakes. My friend and I were rushed off our feet by the demand of such yummie cakes. How fantastic to be told on Monday morning by head teacher Pat Fowler that we had made the great total of �193.96. Fantastic. The children and staff have been so busy lately. We received a visit from Bishop Bob. What a great honour it was for him to visit the children in school and a delight that, as part of a small school, we still share a good Christian faith.Well done to the teachers and all the children at the school. As a parent, I am very proud that my daughter attends this amazing school. Thanks to the great staff there. Keep up the good work.Claire Boyer,Maunders Hill, Otterton.
