Charity Events and Dress Up Days at Deer Park School

MacMillan Coffee Morning: This was our first charity event of the year and was a lovely morning with parents drinking coffee and eating homemade cakes in a relaxed atmosphere. Many people baked cakes and we even had enough for people to buy at the end of the day to take home for tea. We raised £134.89 for this amazing charity.

Movie Nights: Friday 7th October saw our first ever movie night at Deer Park. The children sat down with fruit, popcorn and a drink to enjoy ‘Finding Nemo’. Due to the success of this event it was repeated in December for some ‘Christmassy’ themed short films including The Snowman, which we all love! Our final showing of the year was ‘The Jungle Book’. These nights were a great success and I am sure there will be more to come next year! Thank you to the PTA for arranging them – great fundraisers and fun for the children.

Mufti Days: There is nothing more that the children and staff like to do than dress up! Any excuse! The first event was UN mufti day which involved coming to school dressed in the colours of a country from the UN. This was shortly followed by Children in Need. The theme was ‘spots’ and there were lots of creative outfits on show in Deer Park where we went to complete our ‘daily mile’ – lots of children covered in spots and Mrs Colenso in her pyjamas weren’t going to stop us go and run! Then it was ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ – a day of sparkles and
reindeer! One of the best days of the year was ‘World Book Day’ and we all had to dress up as book characters. In the house were: Dennis the Menace, a variety of fairies, Peter Pan and the Crayons from ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’. Finally we had great fun for comic relief when we all dressed up in something ‘silly’ – most of the staff went back to school and wore the Deer Park school uniform. These mufti days raised lots of money for the PTA but also money was donated to MacMillan, Children in Need and
Comic Relief.

Class dressing Up: A few more reasons to dress up -to fit in with various topics Roe Class dressed up as Pirates – a scary bunch they were! Fawn Class dressed up as Super Heroes and were out to save the day! They also dressed as their favourite fairy tale character – we’ve never seen so many princesses! As you can see – any excuse and we dress up at Deer Park!
