As the newly appointed Head Girl and Head Boy, we wanted to start the academic year off updating you on just a few of our upcoming events that we have planned. We have set ourselves a target of raising £5000 over the next academic year to be split between our chosen charities and funds for school (to be decided). The charities we have chosen are Neoangels a charity close to Olivia’s heart, who help support premature and ill babies along with their families in James Cook and North Tees Hospitals, and the Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary, a local animal charity which many of you will know.
However, the first event we would like to invite you all to is not a money raising event, but more about everyone in the school community getting together, from the junior school parents and teachers to the senior parents and teachers – after such a crazy couple of years we feel like this has been long awaited.
A quiz night will be hosted by our very own Quiz Master, held in the school dining hall on Thursday 7th October at 6.30pm. If you need to bring children they can be looked after in the barn during the quiz but this one is really for the adults so please find alternative arrangements if at all possible. Tickets are £5.00 per person, payable on the door, which will include refreshments (alcoholic and non alcoholic) and nibbles.
Please can you RSVP Mr Thomas (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the 30th September.
We hope as many of you as possible can attend the above event and we look forward to seeing you all there.
To kickstart the fundraising we are going to host our first cake sale of the year on Monday 11th October. We would really appreciate traybakes, cakes and biscuits; if possible the theme is anything pink or blue as these are the colours of the Neoangels charity, but any contributions will be most welcome.
We know we have set ourselves a bold target, however with the help and support of the whole school community we know we can achieve this. We really look forward to seeing you all at the quiz. Please watch this space for future events!
Olivia and Josh, Head Girl and Head Boy
