This month, Mrs Peters is giving up her bed every Friday night to raise money to provide Stand by Me kids in Ethiopia with brand new classroom furniture. On Friday 24th February everyone at Downshire Primary School is joining in by taking on the challenge to give children in Ethiopia the best start to their day.
This year, Stand by Me are sending a shipping container full of educational equipment and resources to Ethiopia to transform the Early Years classrooms at their schools. Mrs Peters has been helping Stand by Me plan and design the new classrooms and later this year she plans to visit the boys and girls at the Bethany Primary School in Ethiopia.
By giving up our beds on Friday 24th February we hope to raise enough money to provide brand new desks and chairs for two Early Years classrooms, giving the Stand by Me boys and girls the best start to their day and helping them become everything they are born to be.
Thank you from everyone at Downshire Primary School
