As part of the P3 topic ‘Transport’ many different forms of transport have been invited to our school on Friday 4th May, 2018.
The gathering will be called ‘Driving Miss Daisy for Daisy Lodge’. It will double up as a fundraising event for the Cancer Fund for Children located on the outskirts of Newcastle as well as both the Paul Ward in the Royal Victoria Hospital for Sick Children in Belfast where our Primary 1 pupil Ciara Mc Veigh was treated at the beginning of the year and the Angel Wishes Charity that has supported her and her family since.
It is hoped to get all vehicles to meet in Island’s Park before making a cavalcade that will enter via the school gates and make its way to the back yard where all entrants will park up. All the Nursery and Primary school children will line the drive and watch the fleet of vehicles pass.
Everyone watching will be asked to make a contribution to Daisy Lodge.
Children in Primaries 3 & 4 from Newcastle and All Children’s Schools have also been invited.
At this point the Primary 3 children will get the chance to view, sit in and ask questions about the different modes of transport. Please note that some vehicles will not be open.
Following this, the other year bands will be invited out to do the same.
A Coffee Morning will complement the activities outside and all parents, friends and interested spectators are invited to attend. Further details to follow.
Please see Latest News on the school website to view the extensive list of vehicles coming.
Already confirmed are a Porsche 911, a World Rally Subaru car, a police patrol car, a fire engine and ambulance, different motorcycles old and new, a Harley Davidson motorbike, a selection of vintage cars, retro minis, campervans, a digger, dump truck, tractors and quads.
We are indebted to all the riders and drivers for making the event special and giving their time and vehicles free of charge.
