Clyste Hydon Pirate Invasion

Last month, pupils from Clyst Hydon Primary School dressed up as swashbuckling pirates and scurvy dogs in a bid to raise money to refurbish their old pirate ship playground equipment. The ship is looking a little worn for wear and would do well with a fresh lick of paint, so the fundraiser was a great way of getting the children involved, while also doing a good deed for the school.

pirateBoth teachers and pupils got involved for the ‘pirate day’ and managed to raise a total of £45, giving it a great start for repairs needed. It was a great effort by all involved, bringing together staff and pupils in order to donate towards a good cause, as children ‘raided treasure chests’ in order to raise the money.

Joint Chair of Governors, Clive Nicholas, had this to say about the event;

“It links to learning themes across the school and is part of developing our children to take an active part in looking after their school and each other”.

This fundraiser has also perhaps given the local children a sense of ‘earning’ their equipment back and will be a worthwhile lesson that they will hopefully take into adulthood.
