Our Charity Leaders will attend a school conference, bringing together all the good ideas for raising money towards their year groups charity, these ideas will be discussed during form period. We will also be holding our first ever 'ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERS CONFERENCE', so watch this space for some amazing ideas and exciting charity events.
Some of the activities we have carried out to raise much-needed funds for worthwhile causes in the past are sponsored walks, climbing the equivalent of Everest, "I'm a Teacher, Get Me out of Here", quizzes, raffles, splat the teacher, hunger lunches, fairground stalls and lots and lots more. It is always, always worth the effort.
