The School Council had a busy term, organising no less than four different charity events!
November saw Remembrance Day where the School Council collected donations for Remembrance poppies. Then, on 18th November, we held a very successful ‘Spotacular Day’ for Children in Need where we raised a whopping £592.41.
In December, the School Council raised money for Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity by selling Christmas pencils and flumpets—these sold out in only three days and we had to contact the charity for more! Finally, on the last day of term, we held a Christmas Jumper Day, the proceeds from which went go to Save the Children charity. On behalf of these charities, the School Council thank you for your generous donations.
In the Spring term, the School Council were busy organising Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day at Ashmead School. The children were invited to either wear red mufti clothes or come to school dressed as someone (or something!) that makes them laugh. It was a great day had by all whilst also raising money for a great cause. The School Council thank you all for your generous donations!
Ashmead also held a joke competition. The School Council loved reading all the amazing jokes submitted by pupils at Ashmead! Winners were announced in the end of term assembly.
