PJs and crazy hair day!|
The School Council arranged a PJs and crazy hair day to raise money for one of the lesser known cancer charities. They researched lots of different charities and the amounts raised for them, then they decided that Christies Brain Cancer was a worthy cause as it wasn't as well know as some other charities. Pupils and staff were asked to donate £1 to wear PJs and have crazy hair. The total raised was £107.20 which will go to the charity. Many thanks from the School Council.
