Staff 5K Fun Run Update

mud_runner

After school on Tuesday 13th December our 5K runners made their way down to the start line to take part in the much anticipated Staff 5K Fun Run in aid of Cancer Research.

Supported by lots of fellow staff members, students, families and other members of the community, the staff took on the 6.5 laps of People Park as the darkness was setting in and the rain was starting to fall.

Everyone’s hard work and training paid off and all the runners made it successfully to the finish line to loud applause from the large group of supporters.

The fundraising target we had set ourselves for this event was £2000. However, as the runners were crossing the finish line we had already passed that target, and the current running total stands at a massive £3558.59 and counting!

On behalf of all of the runners we would like to say a huge Thank You to everyone who helped the event run as smoothly as it did, to all the people who sponsored us and also those who came out and helped cheer everyone along during the event.

We would also like to thank Laughology, JPP, Sustrans and Costa for their donations towards the runners finishing packs as well as Fleurette’s Florist for their floral donation to our raffle.

There is still time to sponsor our runners by visiting https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Stmatthews-5k with all the proceeds going to Cancer Research.

Now to plan the next event to keep our staff on their feet… any suggestions please email admin.mp@stmatthews.primaryluton.co.uk.

‘A Christmas Carol’ Production

Over the past 6 weeks, Year 5 have been working on their production of the classic Charles Dickens novel ‘A Christmas Carol’.

Every child in Year 5 had a hand in the show and split off in to four groups. The actors, choir, costume department and set department. Below is a documentary about the making of the show, and finally some pictures from the performances.

Year 5, you should be very proud of yourselves!!
