Community service this term has once again been very successful, with many events being held throughout the school for numerous charities.
As always, the cake sales have been very well attended with forms raising money to help local causes. Notable cake sales came from U4E and U4H raising £121 and £120 respectively. Well done to all the forms who have held a cake sale for such worthy causes. We look forward to more next term.
Other events included the Macmillan Coffee Morning, raising £142.64 and Children in Need raising £85.65. Following a thought provoking assembly, the non uniform day for the Kasiisi Porridge Project raised £345.40.
This term we have had many assemblies to raise awareness of important events throughout the year. We had the Amnesty International group talk about sending letters to prisoners of conscience, the Children in Need assembly and an assembly demonstrating human rights for Human Rights day.
As a school we raised money and showed our support by selling poppies for the British Legion. We will have made some children’s Christmases a little brighter through Operation Christmas Child with over 100 boxes brought in by the girls and staff.
Earlier in the term, we held our annual harvest festival and collected food and gifts for elderly people in the local area. The L6th recently held the party for the elderly, welcoming local people into school for tea and cakes, accompanied by entertainment from girls. The U6th had their charity week in aid of LAFF for a second year, holding many different events, including teachers family fortunes, Harry Potter day, teachers and U6th fancy dress (with costumes ranging from santa claus to a giant whoopee cushion!). The most anticipated event of the year, the teachers netball match, took place with hot chocolate on sale. The teachers played extremely well and a great time was had by all. The final score saw the women’s team winning by the narrowest of margins after the male teachers had led the game the whole way.
The annual karaoke took place for the first time in the Performing Arts Centre. It is always one of the most exciting events of the year, this time with the theme of guilty pleasures. It was a most successful event.
The CS committees would like to thank everyone for their generosity and we look forward to more events this term.
