CHILDREN at Duddon St Peter’s Primary School showed off their artistic talent by decorating T-shirts for Blue Peter’s latest appeal.
The whole school abandoned lessons to get their paints, crayons and glitter out to design and decorate the shirts which will be worn by children who are having cleft operations in India. The aim of the Blue Peter Send a Smile is to donate the shirts so the funds that would have been spent on gowns can pay for more operations for children with a cleft lip or palate. For every 50 gowns supplied, two extra operations can be undertaken.
The school admin officer Julie Novak said: “All 110 children took part and had a wonderful day. It was very worthwhile.”
Infant pupils from the school also took a special visit to the Iddenshall Hall care home in Clotton in December. Pupils entertained the residents with a scenes and songs from their Christmas production, and then provided them with a lovely selection of cakes which they had made themselves, plus tea and coffee.
Julie added: “It was a lovely afternoon the children thoroughly enjoyed ‘waiting on’ and were lucky enough to have one of the residents play a piece on the piano for them.”
