At the beginning of the academic year The Student Council discussed, in their forms, which charities the school would support in the upcoming year. The majority of the vote went to Demi; a disabled student who needs a specially made bath. The RSPCA was the next charity to be funded.
This is a project that the school does every year; throughout it the school has held different types of fund raising events to support the charities. These include non-uniform days, a student fair and many bun sales.
The main event was held on the 20th of July 2016; The Summer Fete. Every form had a stall, with a grand total of nineteen stalls. The Year 7s had: Mystery String, Hoop the Prize, Bun Sale and Pin the Tail on a Donkey (with a Twist). Whilst the Year 8s had Ping Pong, Splat a Rat, Pick a Winning Cocktail Stick and The Bush Tucker Trial Challenge. Meanwhile, Year 9s ran: Knock Down the Cans, Coconut Shy and Name the Teddy. Finally, Year 10s ran: Chocolate Tombola and Chuck the Pig. In addition, other stalls and activities were running such as: STAR ran Tombola, SEN ran Face Painting and Mr Allison ran The Music Tent.
The fete itself was a fun and exciting afternoon, the weather was great and all the stalls ran smoothly. A huge thanks goes to Mrs Dos-Anjos and Miss Halliday for organising the event and all the money raised will be going to the school’s nominated charities.
