During the last 2 years, we have raised money to help rebuild a school in Mapalagama in Sri Lanka and helped to build a toilet for the new nursery school there. The school was destroyed by the tsunami and The Rotary Club helped to rebuild it. To begin the campaign, we gave up a day in December to bag pack at Sainsbury’s. We raised just over £785 and received a thank you letter from the President of the Rotary Club of Columbo. In the summer terms, we organised a sponsored Fun Run to boost the funds further and raised nearly £2000.
Each year we hold the Enterprise Challenge. The Rotary Club give us £20 to develop a project to raise money for our own school funds. They agree to pledge a similar amount raised to provide equipment for the school in Mapalagama.
This year our Rotakids are: Chloe, Jamie, Lucy and Thomas.
