As part of the Harvest Appeal 2018, the children were given a water bottle each and asked to enjoy the water and help raise money by putting coins in the empty bottles and bringing them back to school. The money raised was £446 and as a school we are very proud of all the people who helped support this crucial appeal and charity.
