And for those of you who have connections with the school but are too far away to come along to our events, we are offering you a chance still to take part with our Online raffle. Tickets £5 each. Here’s your chance to contribute to our fund raising and maybe win £50. You have to be in it to win it!
We are hoping that some of our events and activities will be successful in raising funds for the school. For example, we have been fortunate in that local businesses have donated some very generous prizes for the raffle. So, where is the money going? To go towards the refurbishment of the students’ toilets. In these austere times of budget constraints, schools are having to prioritise their spending, and spending on teachers, resources and school security are, as we would wish, always top of the list. Toilets always have to miss out. Help us fill that gap and make our birthday project flushed with success. Please dig deep into your pockets to support our fundraising efforts. Ask any student or member of staff if they would support this cause.
