Over the last school year, we have aimed to raise money for several different charities in novelty ways. With help from our brilliant charity team we have looked at a range of ways to get the whole school involved in supporting brilliant causes.
We started with a talent show, raising just under £300 for “Battersea Dogs and Cats Home” which saw a range of girls from all years singing, dancing and playing instruments in front of a panel of judges. As always, the school participated in aiding the great cause for the poppy appeal as Remembrance Day approached. In the last week of the winter term, mufti days were gladly welcomed back and the traditional sixth form entertainment raised money for Tanzania. Our big Christmas challenge was to raise as much money as possible for “Children with Leukaemia” which we achieved in two ways. The Year 7s made a great effort being sponsored to take part in the Mr Men challenge whilst the rest of the school supported the cause by buying raffle tickets with the hope of winning the main prize, a £100 Topshop voucher. In the end, we were very pleased to raise £500 for the charity with the extra bonus of seeing Mr Cooksey dress up as Father Christmas!
The House Dance festival raised £289.19 for the winning house's charity, Great Ormond Street Hospital. Pictured right is Teresa's winning contribution.
Thank you for all your efforts,
