In our Fundraising Club students present charities they would like to support and then vote on a charity they would like to support for the term. A couple of students have a personal interest in Epilepsy Research (https://www.epilepsyresearch.org.uk/) and that is the chosen charity for this term. The teacher acts as facilitator to guide the students to allow them to work independently.
On 9 November 2017 the students held a Plank Off to support the charity Epilepsy Research and raised £13.50. The students learned a lot and afterwards had many ideas on what they would do differently next time.
Over the last few weeks we made Christmas snowflake decorations to sell at the Christmas@Padworth event which took place yesterday. The students sold the snowflake tree decorations successfully and held a Christmas competition with a prize for the funniest/best outfit organised by Karina to raise further funds for the Epilepsy Research.
We look forward to seeing exciting initiatives of our Fundraising Club in the new year 2018.
