Ballyoran Primary School is supporting Barnardos as one of its main Charity Fundraisers for this year. Pupils are being asked to collect money to sponsor Mr Hendron who will be running as part of a Relay Team in the Belfast Marathon on Monday 2nd May 2011.
Pupils are also taking part in the Barnardo's 'Egg-citing' Challenge for which they have to bring a hard boiled egg into school on Monday 11th April 2011. They then have to decorate it, give it a name and look after it.
The Charity Fundraiser was launched in assembly on Friday 8th April 2011 when Maureen Hill from Barnados did a presentation.
We ask that pupils do not collect money door to door, but within their own family and friends only. All sponsorship money and green forms should be returned to school in the envelope provided by Wednesday 20th April 2011. A special Presentation Assembly will take place in early June to present a cheque to Barnados.
Keep an eye on 'Gallery' for photographs of our eggs.
