Recently a new initiative in school was launched through our school council. Both in Y5 and in Y6 classes were given a £10 start up grant in cash! They then had to discuss ways to generate money from this starter grant. There were no shortage of ideas. One spent on buckets, sponges and car wash shampoo, another presented a series of mini plays to a paying audience, others had raffles and bun sales. Over less than two weeks frantic co-operation and intense activity generated an unbelieveable total of almost £800. The next step is to invest this money in micro finance projects through Lend with Care. These projects will pay back the loans over time and the funds can be reinvested. Meanwhile there are updates available on all the ongoing projects in various parts of the world. Click on the logo for more information and search for groups( schools) to find St. Patrick's.
