Clere School pupils become entrepreneurs to support BBC Children in Need
Pupils and staff raised in excess of £1500 for BBC Children in Need on Friday 17tNovember, the highest amount ever raised by the school. In addition to pupils paying to wear non-school uniform, cakes and Pudsey merchandise were sold throughout the day. For many pupils however, the most exciting part of the fundraising activities were the ‘apprentice style’ money making schemes which were run by every tutor group during the last lesson of the day.
Mr. Finnegan, Design Technology Curriculum Leader, Year 11 Progress Leader and organiser of the event says “The whole school wanted to do the same as last year as it went so well. The idea was that every tutor group in the school would plan a fund raising idea for other pupils to buy or take part in. This really gives students a chance to be entrepreneurs for the day, and I am always impressed by the effort and level of enthusiasm from our pupils.”
Headteacher Mr Bond added “I am particularly proud of the charity work achieved by our pupils. They have a very strong sense of wishing to help others locally, and around the world, whenever there is an opportunity to do so, and always enjoy raising money for such worthy causes.”
BBC Children in Need continues to be a firm favourite in the school calendar.
