St Martin's - Primary Library

Why we need your help

St Martin’s Day (Martinstag or Laternenumzug) is a German tradition, celebrating the feast of St Martin on 11th November. Children walk through their hometown carrying lanterns, singing songs about Sankt Martin and enjoying sweets and buns or bread figures (Weckmänner) especially baked for this occasion. We usually celebrate at the school with a sale of homemade Weckmänner and hot dogs, followed by a lantern procession, St Martin's songs and a performance of the story of St Martin.
But this year's St Martin's celebrations are moving online!
Just because we can't meet together, doesn't mean we can't celebrate in other ways - here's how to get involved:

Our primary library is a fantastic resource for the school, offering books, DVDs, CDs and magazines in English, French, German and Spanish. All primary children are able to borrow from the library, which is run by some amazing parent volunteers. 

The library relies on donations to keep its stock up-to-date, and the PTA makes an annual contribution of around £1,000 to help with this.

We would like to make a donation of £1,000 again this year, which would usually be covered by the amount we raise from our St Martin's day fundraising efforts.

Whilst we can't offer our usual hot dogs and doughmen, we have tried to offer an alternative online St Martin's day and we're asking for donations to help us reach our £1,000 fundraising target.

Please think about how much you would usually spend at the St Martin's Event and consider making an equivalent donation if you can.

This year, more than ever, we need your continuing support.
