Students raise over £400 for the Marie Curie charity

The Upper Sixth Travel and Tourism class organised a Year 7 Winter disco on 2nd December 2015.  The profits of the event have been donated to Marie Curie, one of the school’s charities.  The Sixth Formers Jaymey McIvor, Grace Blake and Chris Joyner organised the event in its entirety and the feedback  was overwhelmingly positive. 

Travel and Tourism teacher, Miss Pepper said “Grace, Jaymey and Chris all worked very hard throughout the process and demonstrated their ability to organise and oversee a successful event”.  Grace said “being the first event I have ever organised, it was a great experience”.  Jaymey stated, “It was great to have the support of the school community, I am particularly pleased with the amount we have raised for charity.  Lastly, Chris commented “It was amazing to see how our preparation took form and  how the night itself panned out. It was challenging to say the least, but an amazing experience”.  The students raised over £400 for the Marie Curie charity.
