Rock FM 'Mission Christmas'

Thank you to all who donated a gift to Rock FM’s Mission Christmas appeal. The response has been incredible (the photo shows only some of the donations!) and I’m delighted to say that Carr Mill have certainly more than supported the  mission target of ‘A happy Christmas for ALL children’. All the generously donated gifts will be going to disadvantaged local children on Christmas day.

Many, many thanks for helping to make a child’s Christmas morning special.


Friends of Carr Mill 'Christmas Mini-Market'

The Christmas Mini-Market was a great success. We raised a fantastic £490, £140 of which was with the help and support of Isobelle and Katie-Jo who worked hard on the cake stall after generously donating a large number of cakes and biscuits! Thanks to all the other children who stayed behind after school to support too.

A huge thank you to our Friends of Carr Mill for all their help, support and commitment throughout the year. We will let you know exact amounts next week, but from Christmas events alone they have raised an amazing estimated amount of £1200—money that will be going towards a fabulous Friendship Area and making our playground special for our children. The handful of volunteers worked throughout the day yesterday to make sure last night was a success and I’d like to thank each and everyone of them again for this fabulous support.

Also, thank you to everyone who has come to these events and supported the school this term.  It really makes a great difference to the children.


Christmas Performances

Well done to all the children for their fantastic Christmas performances this week. The singing was beautiful and all speaking parts were performed perfectly! Thank you to parents, family and friends who showed their support. Please take the time to enjoy the performances again and again with the videos at the bottom of this page!


Happy Christmas from ACE Charity!

Our International Charity - ACE Charity - have sent two videos from the children of Arise Community School near the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro. One of the videos shows the children singing We Wish you a Merry Christmas. The other is a thank you to Carr Mill for all the support we have provided. Although it is in English, it isn't very clear, so the translation is: The children from Arise School Tanzania would like to thank everyone from Carr Mill School for all your support. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
