On behalf of the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal we have in stock a limited number of items for sale with all money raised going to the RBL. Please see the attached photos for details.
Due to the requirements for social distancing we have had to review how to pass the items over; normally our Year 6 pupils would visit the classrooms and collect the donations in exchange for the items available. This year we can only accept on-line payments through SchoolMoney; all donations sent in this way, will be paid to the Poppy Appeal from our account.
To reserve any of the items on sale, please email the school office at [email protected] and put POPPY in the subject line. We will dispatch the items to your named child; if you have siblings in school then please place a family order rather than two or three individual orders.
Once we have your reservation, we will add your order to SchoolMoney and then you will get a message through via text and email to inform you that payment can now be made. Once paid we will then dispatch your required items to the named pupil. A list of the available items and suggested donation price follows. If there is a choice of colour available that you would prefer, we will try our best to accommodate but an alternative colour may be sent due to stock availability.
Knitted poppy in red (military), white (peace) or purple (animals) – £1.00 Paper poppy – 50p Rubber poppy wristbands in blue, white or turquoise – 50p Zip pulls – 50p Reflective poppy – 50p 6 inch Snap band ruler – £1.00 Poppy Pencil – 50p 6 inch plastic ruler – £1.00 Pencil sharpener – 50p Pack of 4 coloured pencils 9cm – 50p Wooden Remembrance cross – £1.00 Poppy eraser – 50p
Please ensure that you:
- type POPPY in the subject line of the email
- add the child name and year group
- enter the item description, colour if available, quantity required and total cost
- remember to pay on SchoolMoney when you receive the email/text confirming your reservation
We will then send the items ordered out with your child. Orders paid by this Friday 23rd October 10.00am will be sent home on Friday and any orders sent in and paid afterwards will be sent home on Friday 6th November.
On Remembrance Day Wednesday 11th November your child may wear their poppy to school on their uniform but please ensure that you pin the poppy on securely; we will not be able to pin any poppies onto uniform. All other items purchased are for home and not to be brought back into school due to the current situation and the requirement to mitigate any option for virus transmission.
