Wow! So far, the Star Wars marathon has raised over £1000 – more than double our target!
On May 4th pupils came into school dressed in sportswear and trainers… ready to run, to raise funds to support the British Red Cross. The Red Cross are doing vital work and providing essential supplies to those affected by the conflict in Ukraine and the school council decided they would like for us to support this effort.
