PROJECTS

Sponsoring 

We are currently sponsoring 15 children and are continuing to recruit new sponsors. We welcome new sponsors at a cost of £150 per child per school year. One or more sponsors can share one child or you can sponsor more than one child. You are paired up with your child and are sent term end reports.

Go to the Sponsorship Page for the sponsorship pack.

Goody Bags

 

 

We are currently collecting with the idea of sending a small parcel for each child in the school, which would be something not directly for use with school, so perhaps:

a small toy

toothbrush

toothpaste

fun pyjamas

colouring books

socks

pretty hair accessories

Children's playing cards

Skipping ropes

Tee shirts

Base ball caps

Tennis balls.

I am sure you will have some ideas.

Anything that would be just something for them.

Sending Books and

Equipment 

We have sent over 1000 books and other small items of equipment. We are interested in any suitable childrens school books and school equipment which we send by pallet.

School Link to Newlaithes Junior School 

We are extremely pleased to be linked to Newlaithes Junior School in Cumbria. The year 3 & 4 children have recently sent cards and gifts to all the children of Jack & Jill School. We are linking all the 150 children at Jack and Jill School with a child in Newlaithes School. Newlaithes School are helping with lots of fundraising and other ideas to make life a bit more fun and comfortable at Jack and Jill School. Please go to Newlaithes Junior School web site for more information.

School Link to Rosegrove Infants School 

We are extremely pleased to be linked to Rosegrove Infrants School in Burnley, Lancashire. Since being linked at the beginning of 2014 we have swapped books about school life, sent resources and continue to keep in touch. It was from the link at Rosegrove school that Ightenhill Football Club heard about Jack and Jill and donated football kits and boots which we presented whilst there in December 2014.

Stages in School Improvements 

We are aiming to renovate and improve the whole school, but our first priority is to add more toilet and washing facilities. See our news page for up to date news on the school improvements.
