Junior School children held a week of events to support their chosen charity, SpecialEffect.
These events included a raffle, a toy sale, cake and lolly sales, ‘Guess the Number of Sweets’ and ‘Fish for a Bag’ stalls. There were also a number of ‘pop-up’ stalls instigated by the children, fuelling a roaring trade in jewellery and bracelet making! The children enjoyed a House Day as part of the week, where they dressed in their House colours and joined in with an exciting afternoon of fun sports, followed by a House tea.
The children learnt about the charity in an assembly where Dr Mick Donegan gave a presentation on computer technology. SpecialEffect is a charity that enables disabled children and young adults to access computers via a range of special adaptations and equipment and software. The children were able to see the eye-gaze technology in action. This helps to open up communication, independence, self-esteem and quality of life for people who can’t use a computer effectively in any other way.
The Junior School would like to thank everyone very much for all the support for their Charity Week. They had lots of fun and raised a great deal of money. The amazing total for the week reached £1619.00.
