There was a lively start to the day at Packwood this morning as we welcomed Lynsey Kilvert from Hope House back to school for a special assembly.
In the absence of a pianist to play the accompaniment to ‘Give Me Oil In My Lamp’, the children enthusiastically sang and jigged along to a YouTube clip of the hymn. They then enjoyed a slideshow of photographs taken on the 125 sponsored walk with ‘I’m Gonna Be (500 miles)’ by The Proclaimers as the very fitting background music.
Lynsey presented prizes to the children who had signed up the greatest number of sponsors and in turn, we were delighted to hand over a cheque for £2,788.38 – half the total sum raised in sponsorship. The remaining 50% will go towards the school’s 125 Science Appeal.
