Pupils’ ef­forts to help oth­ers abroad

The Scarborough Evening News - - WELCOME TO YOUR NEWS -

Young­sters at East Ay­ton Pri­mary School have been busy rais­ing money for Wat­eraid, a char­ity which helps pro­vide clean wa­ter for peo­ple in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries. Chil­dren in Class 3 took part in a spon­sored walk around the school play­ing field and play­ground while car­ry­ing buck­ets of wa­ter. The in­ten­tion was for the chil­dren to gain a small un­der­stand­ing of how dif­fi­cult it is for so many chil­dren in the world, and to ap­pre­ci­ate all that they have. The school also hosted a bake sake with home-made buns and cakes. The young­sters also watched a video to show how cheap, sim­ple wa­ter pumps can trans­form the lives of many around the world. Pic­tured are Ananya Nair, Bodie Smith, Sammy Ionascu and Maxwell Stone. Pic­ture by Richard Pon­ter 170619
