EASTER RAFFLE UPDATE.  With the eggs that had been donated for the Easter Raffle (28 in total), we have decided to give them to the frontline workers at Doncaster Royal Infirmary with a note: 'Thank you NHS, we think you are doing an eggcellent job, with love from all the families of Arksey Primary School'.  Update - see a thank you letter from Doncaster Hospital below.


The funds that had been raised from sales of the Easter Raffle squares (£20.00 approx), will remain in the 'pot' and the Raffle will continue when we return to School with new treats for the children to win. 



A mass teddy bear hunt is under way around the world to help during lockdown.  Has your family found any?
