UPDATED: Festival Fundraising Delivers Bumper Amount

OUR festive fundraising events in December raised a fantastic £500, which is more than the school anticipated. We'd like to extend our gratitude to everyone who contributed and helped raise this awesome amount. The challenges of organising a series of socially distanced events during Covid made it more difficult than normal but showed what can be achieved if we all pull together.

In normal times we organise a Christmas Fayre, which parents and children alike enjoy and provides the bulk of Christmas fund raising but because of Covid this has not been possible, so to raise £500 is a big success. The money will be used to pay for resources that will enhance the children's learning experience at Selly Oak Nursery School.


SELLY Oak Nursery School has organised a host of fun fundraising events that we would love parents and carers to get involved in!

During these testing times, we feel it’s even more important to spread some festive fun and bring a smile to the children’s faces. During normal times we would invite you all to contribute and attend our Christmas Fayre – which raises important funds for the School - but because of Coronavirus this is not possible.

These events will raise vital funds for the School and help to pay for resources that benefit the children. As always, the generosity of our parents makes a huge difference and your help is always appreciated. If you have any queries, please talk to Mr McKinney on 0121 472 1700.
