We are delighted to inform you of a new school linking project that we are setting up with a school in rural Nepal. The school is in the foothills of the Annapurna Mountains and is a school that one of our staff members, Miss Stillings, worked closely with for 2 years. The school is called Macchepuchhre school and is named after the mountain that it sits beneath. The children at Chorlton Park are currently creating a school photo book all about our school and local area that will be presented to the school in Nepal. We hope this is the start of a long friendship and many activities between the schools that allow the children to learn about lives very different to their own.
We are also currently running a raffle to raise money for our link school. One prize will be drawn per year group. The prizes will be traditional handicrafts made in The Annapurna conservation area in Nepal. Tickets are Â£1 each or Â£5 for 7. All raffle money must be given to the office or class teachers in an envelope with the childâ€™s name and class written clearly on the front. The raffle money will be used to buy essential equipment, such as pencils, chalk and chalk board and text books for Macchepuchhre school. Please buy your raffle tickets by this Thursday!
Please contact Miss Stillings (Yr3) or Miss Kinglsey (Y5) if you would like to find out more!
