Friday 14 November saw Isleworth & Syon students raising money for Children in Need, a charity which helps disadvantaged children in the UK and abroad. This year, we set up a JustGiving page for the first time, allowing parents/carers and students the opportunity to donate to Children in Need directly. This page raised £130 in total. We also hosted a cake sale in the Sports Hall, organised by the individual houses. Students were in charge of selling the cakes, and the queue to get in was very long indeed! Unsurprisingly, students were extremely enthusiastic about the baked goods on offer, and the sale raised just over £90.
We also ran a Mufti Day, with all students given the option of wearing their own clothes for the day, in exchange for a £1 donation. This contributed over £850 to the total raised. Four students in 8D went a step further with their Mufti, dressing in onesies for the day. Overall, parents/carers, students and staff made a fantastic effort, raising £1,100 for this very worthy cause. Thank you to every single person who made a donation.
