Throughout the school year, we usually raise funds for our school and a variety of different charitable organisations. This year we have nominated one charity and that is CLIC Sargent for Children with Cancer.
We decided on this charity as we have pupils who have been affected by this illness and are receiving support from this charity. By supporting this charity we are not only donating to a worthy cause but we are also educating our children on the disease and the effects it has on not only the child, but also other members of the family.
We are still supporting the nationally recognised charity events such as Macmillan Coffee Morning and Children in Need and will also raise funds for the benefit of specific areas of the school such as Choir or Sport Teams transport to events. This page will keep you updated on the funds raised.
TERM 1 - FUNDRAISING ACTIVITY

|Going for Gold Week for CLIC Sargent - All the children took part in a sponsered music marathon where we kept music going from 9am through to 3.00pm going class by class.
