MoPSA 2007

This year we are raising money for the Missionaries of the Poor Supporters' Association (MOPSA). To find out more about MoPSA, visit their website by clicking here. We have done lots of activities to raise money for MOPSA, including carol singing at IKEA and Matalan before Christmas and class collections. During Lent, everyone in school is organising events to raise money for MOPSA. Our target is to raise £3000. See some of the pictures and events below.


6P sponsored times tables challenge

6P raised £480 doing a sponsored times tables challenge. Children were given four minutes to answer as many times tables questions as possible. Each child was sponsored money according to the number of answers they got correct. It was a great effort by everyone in the class.


Year 5 Sponsored Silence

In Year 5 we did a sponsored silence. We asked our family and friends to sponsor us. We are trying to raise as much money as possible for MoPSA. With the money, Missionaries of the Poor will be able to give help and warmth to hundreds of people. It has been very hard for most of us, but we have raised lots of money. The total will be revealed nearer to Easter.


Pancake sale


Year 2 kicked off our fundraising efforts this year with a pancake sale on Shrove Tuesday. After a pancake tossing demonstration during assembly, pancakes were sold at lunchtime to anyone in school who wanted one. Well done to Year 2 for raising £230!

Carol singing at IKEA


The choir entertained the crowds at IKEA in December when they went to sing carols in the entrance foyer to the Milton Keynes store. We raised £150 for MOPSA.

Year 3CO Car wash


On Saturday the 3rd of March the children of 3CO spent the morning doing a sponsored car wash. The children worked in one hour shifts from 8.30am to 12.30pm washing cars on the school playground. There was a steady flow of cars into the car park and everyone was very busy all morning. 3CO showed great teamwork and they were ably led by Mr. Cooper. After an exhausting four hours, the children could think of nothing better than to soak Mr. Cooper with the sponges. See the pictures below for action from the morning.
