Nepal Tuck Shop

This week, our Year 3 and 4 students organised and ran their own tuck shop to raise funds for Water Aid’s Nepal appeal.


As part of their IPC topic, ‘On Tap’, the Year 3s and 4s had been learning about how some people around the world do not have access to clean water. They had been considering how to help to improve the lives of people in poorer countries. In light of the recent earthquakes in Nepal, they decided to help to raise funds for the Nepalese people to have access to clean, safe drinking water.

The children planned, advertised and ran their own tuck shop, all the while showing great empathy for the people of Nepal. They brought in food, drink and stationery donations to sell and encouraged students across the school to bring in money to spend.

The children took their roles as ‘shop sellers’ seriously. They all demonstrated enthusiasm and a responsible attitude. We were very busy at times and the children coped extremely well under the pressure to sell, count coins and calculate change quickly.

In total we raised an amazing £458.35!

Well done to Year 3 and 4 and thank you to everyone who shopped at the tuck shop!
