Grow a Pound
Year 8 students will be taking part in the new ‘Grow a pound’ scheme. This is a fantastic and beneficial activity for both the students and the charity ‘Children’s Hospice Southwest’. Whiteshill Evangelical church have kindly donated £180 so each student can take part. Students will receive a £1 coin, they will then have a term to try and make it grow…
Students can engage with their entrepreneurial spirit to help better the circumstances and lives of those less fortunate than themselves.

Students came up with some great fundraising ideas including;
Car washing, selling cards, cake and drink sales, producing and selling their own art work.

Students in 8G have now taken part and turned their £16 into £82.18! which is fantastic.
