Firstly, the whole school joined in with many other schools celebrating Christmas Jumper Day. This is the second time that the school has supported this to raise money for Save the Children. Altogether we raised over £150 and I'm sure you'll agree that they all look amazing in their Christmas jumpers!
All of our children looking very festive!
As well as this, we had two visitors in our celebration assembly. Mike and Charles (a former pupil of Ainthorpe!) came to hand over the winnings from the Badger Set Enterprise Challenge. Mike gave us a cheque for £800 and announced that we came second overall in the competition, only narrowly being beaten by an aspiring entrepreneur aged 22! Charles also gave the school some money (in memory of his father who also attended Ainthorpe in the 1930's) along with an extra £100 - a grand total of £1120 has been donated by Hull Youth Enterprise to help us to create our book!

Finally, it was our second annual Christmas Fayre. Mrs Britton and her class organised the event which had to be spread over the two halls! It was a very busy few hours with many parents, family members and former pupils attending.
Just a few pictures of the very busy event!
Last year we managed to raise over £750. This year we beat the total - £1150!! This money is being saved to help us to buy a new stage when we move into our new building! Many thanks to everyone who attended - see you next year!
