The Sixth Form Drama Group had decided that any profits from ticket sales from our pantomime 'Cinderella' would be donated to Zoe's Place. Some of the cast were invited for a visit today and were given a tour of the facilities before we presented our cheque for £162.00. It was a fantastic opportunity for the students to get an insight into where our money will go and everyone really enjoyed visit.
Last term I mentioned that the school were involved in a very exciting project in which we had been bought a shop by the A.J Bell Trust, for our pupils to use and gain work experience in. Work is well underway on this now and we are hoping for it to be finished in a couple of months for a September 2018 launch. Please see photos to follow on the School's Facebook page showing you how this is progressing. The shop will primarily be a café with room to sell seasonal gifts such as greeting cards and artwork. Our Sandfield Park printing business will also do some of its work in the office at the back of the shop.
In the meantime there are many things to organise. One of these is to have a name for the shop, there have been a few suggestions but governors would like to open this up to pupils and parents and organise a competition with the winner having a VIP invitation to the launch of the shop in September.
Please have a think about this with pupils, family and friends and see what you can come up with. The winner will be chosen by governors and those involved in setting up the project. Please send your ideas in after the half term break.
Pictures of the Shop and flat in progress can be viewed below. We will keep you posted on the progress
