We are so delighted to share the news that our year one pupil Aariya has been in the local news this week, with the news she has raised over £550 for Water Aid after writing a superhero story.
Aariya, inspired by learning about superheroes and the whole school fundraising for the toilet twinning initiative when she was in Reception created a story about a young girl ‘Laila’ who was poorly from drinking dirty water being rescued by a Water Superhero. The superhero cleaned the dirty water and as a parting gift left Laila a special gem which she could use to keep the water clean.
The story also led her, with the encouragement of her parents, Vin and Nveen, to set up the fund-raising page.
Vin told the Maidenhead Advertiser ” Water Girl has resonated with our family so much that we just had to set up a just giving page to allow everybody the chance to become a super hero by making a donation.”
At the time of this post donations have risen to over £640.
