A final figure of a whopping 2500 was raised by the school in 2015. They are now looking at further events in 2016 to see if they can match or beat last years figure. Further details to follow.
A brain wave (through a passion for South Africa) of teacher Kelly Cubitt has motivated the children from The James Oglethorpe Primary School (Upminster / Essex) to fully support our charity through a number of events.
They have come up with some wonderful ideas to help raise money for our worthy cause:
This first was to make their own design of a ‘rhino skin’, some of the entries and the top 12 can be seen here.
The top 1 in each of the 3 age categories were awarded a ‘Poached Rhino Tee shirt’ in conjunction with Toby illustrations(see below): Rosie Anderson, age 11 won for the year 5/6 category. Chloe Taylor, age 9 won for the year 3 / 4 category.
Laurena Anderson, age 6 won for the year 1 / 2 category and was declared the overall winner of the rhino skin competition. Laurena will have her individual design painted on a one off ceramic Rhino(supplied by my rhino) more details to follow.
We thought it was so good – we published it twice.
They also held a ’bake sale’ on the 8th July, which was a huge success.
They also held a quiz night and raffle / auction on Friday 17th July – they have now raised in excess of £1500-00 for the charity, well done.
They are having a large event on Tuesday 22nd September (which is World Rhino Day) where they will be having the ‘Great Oglethorpe Bake Off’ and also a ‘special challenge’ which will be promoted through social media sites.(more details to follow).
Design turned into reality
