Today’s Mufti and biscuit sale raised £773.39, all of which will be donated to the YMCA to support the homeless in the Bournemouth area. Many thanks to the whole community for supporting this cause but especially to Mrs Powell for all of her baking, as well as to Miss Sheard and the school council for their organisation.
This week we are supporting World Homeless Day in partnership with Bournemouth YMCA. Our school council agreed to support the event and decided to hold a mufti day this Friday, 12th October, in return for a £1 donation. There will also be a cake sale with cakes selling for 50p. All donations will be passed onto the YMCA who had great success last year in supporting homeless people within our area.
We are so proud of our pupil who cut her hair in support of the Little Princess Trust. This charity supports children who have lost their hair due to illness. Not only has she raised £250, but her hair will now be made into wigs for other children.
Many thanks to everyone for their support towards our fund raising for Sport Relief today. The children are looking suitably red and sporty and we have raised a lot of money towards this worthy cause.
Congratulations to 2 of our pupils who won the Christmas card competition run by the Mosaic charity, who provide support for children who have suffered bereavement in their lives. Their cards have been published and are being sold by the charity.
This Friday, 8th December, the pupils are invited to wear their own clothes in return for bringing in a donation towards a class Christmas hamper.

The raffle draws for the hampers will follow next week.
On Monday 11th December the school council have set up a Christmas jumper day. In return for a £1 donation, pupils can wear a Christmas jumper over the top of their normal uniform. The money raised will be donated to Save The Children.
