Busking for Nepal 2015
What a fabulous morning this was! It was great to see the children being so creative in their performances and clearly proud of what they were doing. Some had been obviously been practising for a long time! For one hour, the whole school was turned into a Buskers’ Paradise and, judging from the weight of the money baskets in each class, we will hopefully have a very rewarding result from the day.
Many thanks to all our brilliant buskers, including those who were selected to showcase their talents during the closing assembly. We are sorry we didn’t have time for more.
We will be involving the children next week in counting the money (it will be a great Mathematics’ project) and we hope to announce our final tally before the end of the week. Many thanks also to those of you that generously donated separate amounts in addition to your Busking coins.
We will be sending our money to a small Nepali NGO called Mountain People who were recommended to me by Marc Gold of 100friends, with whom I have been working on charity projects since 2006. Being an experienced, home-based organisation they have a great understanding of the people’s needs and will be looking for educational projects, such as school rebuilding, as a valuable and appropriate use of our donations. I hope to be sending you reports about this in the future.
This will be the last Community Action report for this school year, so I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generous support for our fundraising efforts and we will look forward to continue to make a difference in children’s lives next year.
Finally, I would like to give a big thank you to the Girl Scouts for their talk to the children of Years 2-6, earlier in the term on bullying, showing thatCommunity Action can be child-orientated and take many different and important forms.
