Youngsters at Coningsby St Michael’s Church of England Primary School have certainly been busy raising funds recently.

Last Friday, pupils and staff dressed as characters from the bible.

It was part of the school’s Bible Character Day and helped raise £180.

That will go towards providing new bibles for the school.

Headteacher Mrs K Hodson said: “The children looked super.

“There were some wonderful costumes and I know the classes had some good discussions and guesses about which bible stories they were from.

“We had two guests from the Diocese with us in a Celebration Assembly, as well as Padre Mike and Mrs Bailey who is our Bishop’s Visitor.

“They all enjoyed themselves and all commented on how wonderful the children looked.”

Some of the pupils and adults who took part are pictured above.

Pupils have also been busy supporting Comic Relief.

The school’s entire collection of Red Noses for the big day on Friday March 13 has been sold.

That means the school has already raised £180 - before any events on the day itself.

That total looks set to increase as on March 13, children can wear their own clothes for the day - instead of school uniform - for a suggested donation of £1.

In addition, they can make their face ‘funny for money’ - in line with the overall theme of this year’s Comic Relief appeal.

Monday also featured the start of Book Week.
