Madagascar Week 2018

Court Fields School has had an amazing Madagascar Week! Staff, students and parents have raised over £2,000 in one week. During the week we had various activities happening each day, including sponsor silences, cakes sales, nail bar, quizzes, non-uniform day plus lots more.  The ‘Madagascar’s Got Talent’ show on the Wednesday, which was won by the fantastic trio of singers, Rebecca Watts, Elaine Robinson and Megan Leslie and finishing off on Friday with the annual sponsored walk to the monument and back. The student carried bricks and planks of wood as this is how the children in Madagascar often have to walk each day when they go to school. The children then use the wood and bricks for desks and chairs when they get to school.

With the money already raised this year we will now be able to pay for a classroom extension on the school which Court Fields has already paid for. This will mean that the older students will now be able to go to school nearer their homes and not need to walk long distances for their education, or carry planks of wood and bricks each day.

Over the past 9 years Court Fields School has managed to raise over £20,000! This has paid for three water projects and a primary school, which we will be able to build an extra classroom on this year. These projects would not have been possible without the time, hard work, compassion and generosity of everyone at Court Fields School. We can be truly proud of the differences we have all made to the harsh daily lives of the people in these villages in Madagascar.

Our next main fundraising event will be a Christmas Craft Fair, which will be held on Saturday 10th November, 10.00 am to 4.00 pm.  We are now taking applications from stall holders. Already we have had over 100 enquiries!  Please contact the school if you would like any information or can offer any help or support for our fundraising.

Thank you all, past and present staff, students and parents for this fantastic achievement.
