On the 5th March we celebrated World Book Day!

A fun filled day in primary as the children and staff came dressed as their favourite characters. Everyone looked fantastic!

St Oswald’s Fundraiser

Our Fundraising event for St Oswald’s hospice was a huge success and we raised a fantastic £1189.40

St Oswald’s is very close to our hearts here in Castle School and we have been overwhelmed by the support we have received from everyone who supported our event. THANK YOU ALL!

It was a special day that everyone could be involved in, and our pupils thoroughly enjoyed their time on the disco dome bouncy castle.

We set up a stall in Duke’s school in the morning and we had a range of stalls set up in the primary hall for the main event – something for everyone!

We were delighted to have Laura Atkins-Gray join us for the afternoon and draw the raffle!

Fantastic support once again from Jill and Alex from Akzo Nobel.

Jill made everyone sparkle with her fabulous glitter tattoos!

We had a VIP guest – ‘Madison’ the gorgeous and extremely well behaved ‘Dulux Dog’ who put a smile on everyone’s face.

Sublime hairdressers came to support our event and were kept very busy doing the staff and children’s hair all afternoon!

We ended our afternoon with music from Dukes choir – who were outstanding!

A really special moment for us when some of our pupils spontaneously joined the choir.  Thank you to all the talented students from Dukes, Mr Thompson and Anna Corcoran.

Fantastic teamwork from all the staff here in Castle School, but we have to extend a special thank you to Storm for all her hard work and the passion she put in to planning the event.

We have so many people to thank for their help and support.
