Whole school enrichment sessions continue this term on a Wednesday afternoon, with Citizenship as this term’s theme. Today, as part of that, we welcomed guest speakers from two worthy charities, who provided an insight into what each charity does. Students who raised monies for the charities during previous fundraising events were able to hand over cheques to the charities during the visit.

First to speak was Susan Bugby, a trainer from St Johns Ambulance who accepted a  cheque for £1,110.98 presented to the charity on behalf of U1R and U3R. This was followed by Ms Gomez on behalf of Cancer Research to whom students presented a cheque for £531.45.

With a date of Wednesday the 18th October, a citizenship challenge of organising and taking part in one of the following activities was also launched during the afternoon:

-Volunteering

-Raising money for charity

-Good deeds / Helping people

-Improving the environment or school area

-Recycling projects

The Lower School will also take part in the Trussell Trust shoebox appeal on the morning of Wednesday 18th October.
