On this page we share with you details of all our fund raising activities and events in aid of various different causes and charities.
Also included are occasions when we simply helped out in our own community
DAVENTRY FOOD BANK COLLECTION
In December 2020, together with the KSA and Kilsby Pre-School, we supported the community by running a collection for Daventry Food Bank.
We put together a series of hampers that were given out to vulnerable families and the elderly in our community. Our hampers contained items such as tins of fruit, milk, ham, tuna and packets of rice, jelly, custard, crisps, crackers, biscuits, and other items such as chocolates, mince pies, stuffing, Christmas pudding, jam, marmalade, etc.
We hope that these hampers helped to make someone's Christmas special.
CHILDREN IN NEED - 13th November 2020
On Friday 13th November everyone came to school dressed in something spotty in support of Children in Need, a charity we support this time every year.
We all brought a donation into school and raised a grand total of £161.37, which is brilliant! We very much appreciate the support from all our parents and children.
Pink Day at Kilsby School
On Friday 23rd October 2020 everyone came to school wearing something pink, some of us were pink all over! We all brought a donation in towards a charity very close to our hearts and a very worthy cause, Breast Cancer Awareness.
We raised a grand total of £256.64 which is fantastic for such a small school, we are very grateful to all who donated so generously.
On Wednesday 9th October all the children and staff attended the Harvest service at St Faith's Church, Kilsby with the Rev Nigel Fry.
Each class participated in the service. The children in Maple class read a Harvest Prayer, Rowan class spoke of 'Food all around the world', the children in Cherry class read a 'Harvest poem' and the Reception children in Chestnut class sand a Harvest Song.
All the children brought beautiful harvest gifts to school before the service and later these were distributed around the village of Kilsby to the elderly residents. We have already received some thank you letters from the villagers!
CANCER RESEARCH AND HOPE
On Wednesday 9th October, after the Harvest service at St Faith's Church, everyone was invited back to school for a coffee morning organised by the children in Rowan class, all donations were split between Cancer Research and HOPE. Thank you very much to all those who attended and donated cakes, we raised a grand total of £116.92 which is fantastic! Thank you!
Epilepsy Awareness Day Tuesday 26th March 2019
Because it was Epilepsy Awareness Day on Tuesday 26th March, and also because we have children in school with epilepsy, we all came to school dressed in something purple to raise money for the Epilepsy Society. Children brought a donation into school and at morning break time some of the girls in Maple class held a cake sale. There was a huge queue of children wanting to buy cakes, and we did very well for a small school raising a grand total of £107.96.
We would like to say a big thank you to all the parents who donated cakes for this event, your support is very much appreciated.
LITTER PICKING IN KILSBY
On Thursday 14th and Friday 15th March 2019, all the children at Kilsby School did their bit to help keep Kilsby tidy by going out and about around the village, in class groups, to pick up any litter they could see. They used special litter pickers to grab the rubbish to put it into their sacks and wore hi-vis jackets.
We hope the residents of Kilsby agree that the village is looking much tidier!
SHOE BOX APPEAL
During October 2019, we have been working alongside St Faith's Church to help put together some gift boxes for desperately poor children and families at Christmas time. Some of these children live in tents in the mud, or in the back of container lorries, some have never ever received a present, so receiving gifts such as these means so much to them.
The children brought little gifts into school such as hairbrushes, toothbrushes, soft toys, colouring sets, sweets, etc. to put into shoe box sized, decorated gift boxes. This is something we do every year, and it is good to know that we are helping someone, somewhere in the world.
