KILDWICK Primary School curried favour with parents to raise cash.

The school hosted a curry night indoors and out to raise money for a shelter in its Early Years Foundation Stage area.

School head Tim Whitehead said: “The event was organised by parent Shaheen Shan who prepared delicious food, organised henna painting and also Bhangra drumming.

“The event was a huge success and raised in excess of £700. This money will go a long way to securing a suitable sheltered structure which will help with the EYFS outdoor learning.”

Kildwick pupil Olivia Scott last month came seventh out of 40 in the North East Regional Championships for ballroom and sequence dancing.

After making it through three rounds, she qualified for the nationwide championships at Blackpool Winter Gardens in October.

Rugby-playing pupil Aaron Horner took part in the Leeds Rhinos Challenge recently in Skegness and his team won four matches.
