We would just like the opportunity to thank all the parents/carers and students who joined in with a Children in Need fund-raising day at the Duke’s Middle School.

It was a fantastic (and busy) day with lots of fun activities happening over break and lunchtimes, including naming as many three letter words as possible in 30 seconds, a massive cake sale and raffle, guess the number of spots on a huge bandana and loads more.

The good news is we beat last year’s total by £12, raising nearly £485. We hope to have another great Children in Need fund-raiser next year as it is great fun and raises a lot of money for children’s charities.
