The Friday before the Autumn half-term holiday is now firmly established in the school calendar as the day of our annual Coffee Morning, raising funds for a charity chosen by our pupils. This year pupils chose to raise funds for Cancer Research, continuing on from last term’s Pentlands sponsored walk.
As well as choosing the charity pupils are responsible for planning the event, designing invitation cards, baking all the lovely produce, writing and delivering the address to guests, as well as the multitude of other tasks essential to the success of the morning.
Including gift aid, £514.50 was raised on the morning and, adding to the £271.27 raised on the sponsored walk, gives a total donation of £787.77 to Cancer Research. A fantastic effort by all our pupils.
