Throughout the year, the school has been raising money for Project Mala, a charity which funds schools for children in India. Each class sponsored a different child whose education was being funded by Project Mala.
Each year group organised an activity to raise funds. Reception organised a charity car wash, Year One held the 'Great Upton Bake Off' cake sale, and Year Two held a 'Mega Mala', a festival of Indian food, music and dancing.
These activities collectively raised £800 for Project Mala. On Monday, Robin Garland from Project Mala visited the school to tell the children about the work of the charity. The School Council then presented Robin with a cheque. The school will continue to follow the work of Project Mala in the coming years, but the School Council will shortly be considering which charity they will be supporting next year.
