This year, our amazing 6th class organised a fundraiser for the people of Ukraine and also to raise money for our school tour. We decided to make and sell flower pots at Easter. Firstly, Mahé and Eve calculated how much the pots would cost to make and how many we would need to sell to make a profit. They also designed a poster and business cards. Then we went up to the polytunnel in groups. We did six pots each. We did around 120 pots in total. We put two different coloured flowers in the front and one big one in the back. We also added an Easter bunny decoration. We took turns to water them every day. When collection day came, we were put into five groups, each group was in charge of a different class. All the students gave out the planters to their assigned class. We made some extra plants in baskets that some people bought aswell. Everyone got their pots and went home happy !
Here are our unbelievable figures;
|Flower pots and bunnies||€311.81|
|Flowers from Milltown Garden Centre||€450.00|
|Donation to Red Cross||€360.19|
|Contribution Towards School Tour||€315.00|
All of 6th Class were very proud with the total income and kindly decided to donate €360.19 to the Red Cross Foundation in honour of Ukraine. We thank Ms. Dynan for gathering the materials and we thank students, teachers and parents for buying the planters. We hope that everyone enjoyed their Easter Planters and I hope Ukrainians have found shelter from this awful war .
