Wig Wednesday Fundraiser WIG-WOW!
A huge thank you to everyone who supported our Wig Wednesday
Fundraiser in support of our pupil, Jessica. The day was a great success
with an array of headwear chosen by pupils and staff. Judge Jess made
her choices for the most creative headwear, after much deliberation.
Well done to Steele, Connor, Freddie, Stanley and Mrs. Moores! As
money is still being pledged, we will be sharing our grand total next week
and then donating the funds to Ward 84 at The Manchester Children’s
Hospital and to help Jessica with her education and school studies whilst
she is away from school. (Spring 2020)
Young Voices Event
The Friezland Choir were an absolute credit to us all! We had some
of the youngest choir members at the event and our children sang
their hearts out during the rehearsals and the evening event,
providing the choir for artists, Tony Hadley of Spandau Ballet, The
Shires and Ruti Olajugbagbe (The Voice 2018 winner). It was a long
day and all were inevitably tired by the end of it but we still
returned to school smiling and humming the songs. Thank you to
the staff who volunteered to accompany the children and to Mrs.
Wilson who has spent weeks rehearsing the songs and dance
routines with our children. A huge thank you also goes
to our families who came along to watch and cheer us on. (Spring 2020)

Thank you to Mr. Freeman and parents for coaching and transporting the teams to these events- we couldn’t do it without your support.

From the Friezland pupils who were short-listed, Amelie was our overall winner but we couldn’t be prouder of you all!
