Our students have now been fundraising since the start of October, with Beth in 8S having raised over £1000 so far ! Many congratulations to her and everyone for their hard work and commitment to fund raising. Several pupils made very worthwhile sums at the Christmas Fayre, having spent a lot of time producing craft items to sell.
Livvie`s family in 9M have had a sponsored `dry` January and are also planning a walk around Jersey at Easter. Annie is preparing to cycle around the Isle of Wight to raise funds whilst Hannah has decided to walk around it. Ella in 9C did a sponsored cycle around Richmond Park and has set up a Justgiving page to reach a wider audience. Several 8C girls are holding a Movie Night on February 24th for Prep pupils and a pancake sale near Shrove Tuesday is also being planned. A cheese and wine evening is also being discussed at present.
It is very encouraging to hear that all Vietnam students are doing chores around the house to earn extra pocket money (as well as helping their parents of course ) and many are babysitting for neighbours and friends. We wish them all the best in the next few weeks and very much appreciate all the support received from their families, friends and teachers.
