Market Deeping Primary
A big thank you to MDCP who continue to support MSP in a variety of ways.
Earlier this year (2012) the children made a great film of life in school which
was thoroughly enjoyed by the children and staff at Miche Bora Primary School.
So much so that the children in Kenya decided to make their own for us to bring
back to the UK. (This is now available for all to see on our homepage)
Letters are also being relayed to and fro between the children with the UK and
our children in Kenya with the trustees acting as postman. A much more reliable
form of post than the traditional method.
In the autumn term 2012 some of the proceeds from the school's harvest festival
were donated to the school in Kenya, a cheque for more than £100 which makes a
great difference in Kenya.
Then in November we received an unexpected and very welcome donation of a
complete reading scheme. The scheme did not meet with the UK government's new
recommendations for teaching reading but what a fantastic bonus for our children
A big thank you to the children and staff of Market Deeping Community Primary

During the busy spring and summer terms of 2010 Market Deeping Primary
linked their support for The Mustard Seed Project with the 2010 World Cup and
their Fair Trade and Enterprise activities. In May all of the children took part
in an Enterprise Activity Event, which ran for two weeks. During this time the
children were asked to think of different ways of raising small amounts of money
during their morning break. Working with a group of friends they sold drinks,
biscuits or cakes, designed a treasure map or ran a small competition or raffle.
Throughout this event the emphasis was on the children working co-operatively,
rather than on the amount they raised. As a result of their efforts the children
raised a total of £247.
As the World Cup approached the children collaborated to put together a musical
extravaganza featuring songs and dance inspired by Africa, called "Africa
Rocks". The work of the Mustard Seed Project was brought to the attention of the
audience at the start of the each performance and donations were invited. The
children were delighted to have raised over £300 during their four performances.
In addition to these big events, the children have also raised money through
selling jewellery and healthy Fair Trade snacks at their school discos. They
also donated the proceeds of their harvest festival in Autumn 2010 to the
Mustard Seed Project which raised another £189.
Well done Market Deeping Primary and a big thank you from Mustard Seed Project.
This money has made a great difference to our school in Kenya.
