On Wednesday 21st march we held a fundraising Bingo night to raise money for Kylan J , the brother of one of our pupils. Kylan has a rare medical condition which means he requires specialist equipment in the family home. Over 100 people form the community attended the event, which included a raffle. All items were donated by local businesses and staff. It was a great success, with other £700 raised on the night itself!
We have been helping to take care of our community by removing weeds and preparing the flowerbeds in the park for bulbs and spring flowers

In 2018, Thornhill Primary is taking part in 'Pride of Place'- a campaign launched by Mayor Mike Starkie to highlight the best things about Copeland and the areas which need to be improved. Watch this space for details.....


Thornhill Primary is at the centre of our community


Key stage two students have been completing baking challenges while collecting funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.


The children managed to raise £183.50 towards improving the lives of people living with cancer.


During design and technology lessons the pupils have been exploring different aspects of baking.


"During cake week children created a signature bake of cupcakes in aid of the Macmillan coffee morning which was hosted in school," said Helen Toman, office manager at Thornhill.


"Children researched their own recipes and designs and then created their masterpieces."


Parents and members of the community were invited into school to enjoy the cakes.


"The children were proud of the contributions they made to this worthwhile cause," said Mrs Toman.


Cake and coffee mornings are Macmillan's biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. The charity's goal is to make sure no one faces cancer alone.


It provides medical, emotional, practical and financial support and campaigns for better cancer care.
