Madagascar Week

Madagascar’s Got Talent

Last Wednesday evening a packed school hall was treated to an amazing amount of talent, brought to us by students at Court Fields. The acts were mostly vocal, and Daisy Gatling did a beautiful rendition of Under the Sea on her clarinet, which received huge applause.

Micaela Sellick and Isaac Jones sang and danced their way through Count on Me, Shannon Keeble and Leah Fudge sang accapela versions of Take Me Home and Someone like You. Haegan Power, Caitlin Baker, Ashley Payne, and Kaitlin Rood all sang with their heart
s and souls, receiving some great feedback from the 4 judges. The runners up were Chris Coupe and Josie Owen who did a beautiful version of Dancing on My Own, and the very deserving winner of the night was Alicia Hayes, who reduced some of the audience to tears with her rendition of When We Were Young, a truly memorable performance.

The evening raised over £450 which will go towards the school that is being built in Madagascar.

Madagascar Week

Students at Court Fields School have been busy fundraising all week for Madagascar.  They have organised a range of activities in order to raise as much money as possible to fund a primary school in Madagascar. Madagascar’s Got Talent was held on Wednesday and unfortunately the annual sponsored walk had to be cancelled due to the weather. It will now be held on Wednesday April 27th after school. During the week there were cake sales, raffles, a non uniform day and a penny jar collection which produced an amazing £1500 in one week!

The money which we have raised over the past few years now amounts to over £13,000.  We have provided three safe clean water projects to one school and two villages, helping several hundred people.  Thank you to all students, parents, staff and people of Wellington who have supported us in this very worthy cause.  Our aim now provide enough money to build a primary school.  Hopefully the primary school will be complete this summer. This is when our group of eight students who are going on expedition to Madagascar will be able to visit the school.

Thank you for all your support and hard work!

If anyone would like to help or support us in anyway please contact is school.
