'Elmer on Parade' Update
As you may remember, the Rotakids held Elmer Day last year in order to raise funds for our very own Young Elmer to take part in St. Elizabeth Hospice's 'Elmer on Parade', taking place later this year. We are pleased to announce that our fundraising, combined with the generous donation of £350 from the Rotary Club, secured our elephant! After lots of discussion we decided to name our new school member, Hallie.
Work has begun to decorate Hallie in a way that represents our houses: Hope, Endeavour, Glory and Grace. All children and staff got involved on World Book Day by adding a fingerprint in their house colour. A time-lapse video was recorded and will be shared on our website to document the occasion. We have plans to display Hallie before being collected and put on display at the Suffolk Show and then in Ipswich over the summer - we will be in touch with details!
