Community Matters Charity Summer Fair

Categories: Latest Academy News, Featured

For the last day of term, as part of our Community Matters character programme, we held a Summer Fair for students to enjoy, and to raise funds for the three charities we are currently supporting. Students and staff were also invited to wear Mufti, including cultural dress in exchange for a £1 donation.

To start the day, Mr Queally and Mrs Buckley brightened up the morning whilst doing their car park duty. Donned in their strange-looking Hawaiian outfits, they welcomed students, giving out garlands to all.

Then, in their year group bubbles, students went to the field to participate in a number of fundraising activities to including laser tag, gladiator, bouncy castle, Tsumo suits, football shootouts and much more!

At lunchtime, students enjoyed the chance to 'Sponge a Teacher' for a small donation. Mr Clyne, Mrs Rigby, Miss Osmani, Miss Fitzgerald, Miss Zaman, Mr Mclaughlan and Mr Windsor bravely took part and all got suitably soaked.

All this was to raise funds for the three charities we are supporting this year. 

Superhero Foundation - A local charity supporting families of both children and adults with an illness or disability. https://www.superherofoundation.org/

Young Minds - A national charity supporting children and young people who are experiencing or have experienced some mental health issues. https://youngminds.org.uk/

Street Child - An international charity that supports children in poverty in many countries around the world to access education. We have been supporting their Covid-19 drive to get students affected by Covid back into school. https://www.street-child.co.uk/

The day was a great success and it was a fitting way to end the year. Thanks go to Mr Anderson and all the staff and students who worked so hard to organise the event. We wish everyone a restful holiday and look forward to seeing students again in September and welcoming our new students in Years 7 and 12.
