July 2017: Charity day nets more than £3,500

OUR SPECTACULAR charity day saw students from Years 7 to 10 arranging 82 different stalls that raised more than £3,500.
Lots of different charities benefited from the events on the day including local good causes Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary, Maundy Relief and Derian House.
Students could get their hands painted with henna, enjoy dining on home made cakes, sweets and Asian food, try their hand at different challenges including the lemon bucket challenge where a 10p piece had to be balanced on a lemon in water.

Year 10 student Jack Kendrick, 15, even raised £22 just by peforming back flips at 20p a flip.
Assistant Headteacher Ms Edyvean said: “This is the 15th charity day we have held and I have to say it is the best yet.
“The students have been so well organised. They have decided what they wanted to do, made the items for sale, arranged their stall and needed little help from staff.
“The Asian food and Henna painting stalls raised almost £1,600 alone, which will be going to help a project working with street children organised by the Muslim Charity.”
