BBC Children in Need 2017
On Friday 17th November 2017, we were seeing spots in front of our eyes. No, we hadn't banged our heads, we were taking part in a Mufti Day for BBC Children in Need. However, our fundraising did not just take place over one day. Our School Council and House Captains have been busy for over a week selling official merchandise to help raise as much money as possible and there have been yummy bake sales too. Our Media Group even made an advert to promote the merchandise. A big thank you to Miss Edwards and Mrs Nichols for their hard work in making this happen and a big thank you to all our children and parents for supporting such a wonderful charity. We are proud to announce that we raised a whopping £1,402.11.

Where Did Your Harvest Donations Go?
Your very generous Harvest donations were divided and distributed to two worthy causes.
On Thursday 2nd November, our House Captains and Vice Captains helped volunteers from Sudbury Neighbourhood Centre load the boxes into their minibus. On Tuesday 7th November, our Pupil Chaplains travelled in the minibus with Mrs Rands to Harrow Foodbank. Here the food was weighed (75.2 kilos) and the children were kindly given lots of information about how the Foodbank works and how their donations would help people who were very much in need.
School House Captains Raise Money for Grenfell Tower Survivors
My name is Ella and together with the other House Captains, we decided to raffle a Halloween Hamper to raise money for the Grenfell Tower survivors. Guess what? We pulled it off!
As everyone helped so much and we managed to raise so much money, we even added seven extra bonus prizes! The top three prizes were:
3rd Prize: Halloween Sticker Book
2nd Prize: Pumpkin Full of Sweets
1st Prize: Fabulous Halloween Hamper
The winning raffle ticket has a funny story behind it. It was actually won by Mrs Nichols in the school office, but Mrs Nichols wasn’t in school, so Mrs Monaghan thought Mrs Nichols would like the ticket to be redrawn. So it was, and that ticket was won by Zofia in 6E. So, although Mrs Nichols didn’t win the hamper, she received a consolation prize of a box of Maltesers and a Chocolate Orange!
Altogether we raised £116.89 and this money will help, in a small way, the Grenfell survivors become stronger and united as one.
Lastly, on behalf of all the House Captains and myself, I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone!
