S5 / 6 RETAILING CLASS 2016 – RAISING MONEY FOR THE SICK KIDS’ FOUNDATION

QWDFV SWEETIE1

Congratulations to this year’s S5 and S6 pupils from the Retailing class. They organised a mini enterprise retail event on Friday, 26th February 2016 which raised a very impressive £405 for the Sick Kids’ Friends’ Foundation. They were responsible for creating and selling cones of brightly coloured sweets at a stall in the foyer during interval. The event proved extremely popular with staff and pupils and we had sold out entirely within the first 5 minutes!!

They also decided to host a ‘dress down’ day for the same morning where they invited pupils and staff to come to school wearing something bright and colourful. All profits raised from both events have gone to a very worthwhile charity.
