Dance or wiggle

Mabel Prichard School took part in ‘sponsored Dance or wiggle’ fundraising event organised by Happy Days.

On Monday 15th of June we had all school dance event where both Upper and Lower school danced their socks off.

Lower school children practised ever so popular Gangnam style and they also had a very special visitor, Anna from Frozen lookalike, who judged the dancing and the costumes!

Upper school practised few disco moves and then enjoyed dancing together. Pupils created some never seen before disco grooves too.

We raised £210 and all money will go to the Happy Days charity.

Since 1992 Happy Day’s Children’s charity has helped over 160.000 disabled, sick and vulnerable children across the UK with holidays and short breaks. Happy Days has helped our school to organise different events, like Christmas pantomime and trip to Legoland.

DISABLED youngsters can now join in fun outdoors after a new £25,000 outdoor playground opened at their Blackbird Leys school.

Staff and parents at Mabel Prichard School called on the community to help raise the cash to transform the run-down facility after equipment became unsuitable for disabled pupils.

The Cuddeson Way school officially opened its new playground on Friday after receiving £10,000 from the Big Lottery Fun last month.
