Key stage 4 recently held a Cake and Craft sale to raise money for both the school minibus appeal and the Propeller Project . Classes from both the primary and secondary sites were joined by a number of parents and some Grandparents in a pleasant morning of eating, drinking, shopping and chat.
Pupils from Angus and Bec’s class sold biscuits, cakes and drinks to raise over £100 for the school minibus appeal. They also organised a raffle for an exceptional Easter inspired chocolate gateau, made by our very own Mary Berry , teaching assistant Frankie Holt. Everyone was keen for a chance to win the delicious looking cake and raffle ticket sales raised a further £50.
Pupils from Zoe’s class worked with Rebecca from the Propeller Project to sell Easter and Mother’s Day crafts.
The Propeller Project is a social enterprise established to provide work and life skills. The aim is to provide a taste of the commercial world and to allow pupils to interact with customers in a business situation. It also provides some real experience to add to a CV. Pupils produce craft products and grow seasonal plants and flowers. They are then involved in all aspects of selling their products. Rebecca said it was “A brilliant morning, We had good fun and raised £115 too!”. Pupils also sold some beautiful planted pots created at the Propeller Project that raised a further £35.
All in all the morning’s efforts raised a whopping £300!
Rebecca and Hamish from the Propeller Project and all the staff and pupils in Key Stage 4 would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who came along and supported them!
