Pitching our ideas

This week we were joined by our headteacher, Mr Freeman. This was a great opportunity to pitch our ideas and to get approval and further guidance. Now with greater clarity we were able to progress to the final stages of planning awith a view to implimenting our ideas in the near future. The Clean Water and Sanitation group now have a focus for fundraising, to organise a charity quiz night in March. A large list was drawn up of the things that need to be organised. It is going to be a very busy start to the new term for the team.

The Quality Education team leaders presented a sample of the "school in a box" idea and discussed the numbers we will need to provide to the orphanage. The Charity that supports the orphanage estimates between 40-45 boxes will be needed. Our target is to provide at least 30 of these with the charity auctioning off boxes at a charity night in early December.

The No Poverty group came up with the idea of providing a tuck shop to raise money to buy growing shoes. This is likely to be a big hit with fellow students. What a great way to learn about trade and ecconomics as well as raising money for a great cause. The team leaders hope to start after half term.
