The new playground opened at Canonbury Primary School on Friday 28 September 2018 much to the excitement of all the children.
The Canonbury Auction of Promises was held on Thursday 12 October 2017 to help raise funds for the redevelopment of the Canonbury Primary School Playground.
The Auction of Promises raised a phenomenal £40k, all of which went towards the playground project. This remarkable achievement was down to the generosity of all Canonbury parents, carers and staff who came up with hundreds of creative ways to contribute their time and skills, from extra reading sessions or cornet lessons to weekly home baked bread deliveries, website design or a football party.
Thank you to everyone who donated or won an item in the auction. It was a great success. A number of parents were heavily involved in the event, but a special mention must go to Suzie Graves. The event was hosted by Katherine and Nick Duncalf, who did an amazing job of persuading people to bid for items.
