Have you heard a fairly constant clicking sound in the St Austell area since January? If you have, it was probably the sound of Mrs Franklin and her team of knitters busy producing woolly jumper badges – all in aid of Save the Children.
To celebrate National Christmas Jumper Day, pupils and staff have been given the opportunity to buy a hand-knitted Christmas jumper badge. Over 500 of these badges were made and sold. In addition, two cuddly toys (each wearing their very own hand-knitted jumper) are being raffled in assembly next Friday.
This has raised an incredible total of more than £570 for Save the Children. Thank you to everyone who supported the cause by buying a jumper and special thanks go to Mrs Franklin and her team of knitters for producing so many jumpers!
Last month the pupils supported Children in Need. Coming to school dressed as superheroes, or in their pyjamas, there was the annual treat to throw wet sponges at Mr Behennah and Mr Walters, cake sales and filling as many pairs of pants as they could with coppers!
Over £800 was raised on the day for Children in Need. Again, thank you to everyone for your generosity, and to the School Council for organising the events on the day.
Our charity endeavours did not stop there, as we also supported St Austell Foodbank as part of our harvest festivals. 338.8 kg of food was donated from the school – the biggest contributor in the local area.
What a trio of charitable achievements! Well done everyone.
