Hayesdown First School

Striving for excellence together


Posted on: 1st November 2019

Congratulations – we did it!!!

The amazing pupils and families at our school completed the

ONE BIG SPONSOR  dance-a-thon event

during the last week of term – and we managed to raise just over a staggering £2000. The children threw themselves into the dancing, ENTHUSIASTICALLY moving and grooving the day away, many dressed in leg warmers, tutus and shaking pom-poms!!!


The generous donations from family and friends means that we are now able to buy some new books to support our project learning. It will make a big difference to our library and to children’s learning – thank you so much!

As we exceeded our target – doubled it in fact – the teachers had to perform a dance for the whole school to enjoy (?). We think the children were definitely the better dancers – but it gave everyone a giggle and was a fantastic way to celebrate how the whole school join together to be HAPPY & HEALTHY!
