Showing support for communities far and near

Posted by on May 20, 2015 in News | No Comments


To show solidarity with the people of Nepal, held a non-uniform day fundraiser on Friday 1st May.  Some students chose to wear a ‘onesie’, in keeping with the theme of unity and the showing of compassion for the people who have been so terribly affected by the devastating earthquake.  The grand total of £565.31 was raised and this will be sent to Oxfam to support its Nepal Earthquake Appeal.  The charity will be using funds raised to provide much needed clean water, sanitation and emergency food.

Taking place on the same day was another big fundraiser, this time to help raise money for the 50th Anniversary of celebratory event, scheduled to take place on Saturday 4th July.  The day will have something for young and old and will include a major exhibition of archive photos and artefacts from the last 50 years in the main school hall, as well as an extensive programme of community events on the school’s playing fields overlooking the River Tamar.

Thanks to the generosity of staff and students, including Phoebe and Oona Svarc from Year 11, who donated a huge box of popcorn, the Cake Sale raised £188.70 and was enjoyed by all.
