Sir John Sherbrooke Junior School

We are a 'Take Care' school

Children In Need & Macmillan Cancer Support

Sir John Sherbrooke Junior school pupils have, once again, shown their caring natures and thought of others. Firstly, they managed to raise just over £235 for Children in Need. They held a cake sale, as well as having a non-uniform day. Many children wore ‘something different’ to school. This included: odd footwear, mismatched socks, some unusual colour combinations and crazy hair!

On Wednesday 18th November, a group of children were responsible for organising events to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. The children, who are part of the school’s Take Care team, had initially approached our Executive Head, Mr Maddison, with their ideas. They too raised an incredible £235. The day started with a Story Cafe. Parents and pupils were invited to come along and have breakfast, for which they made a donation. Afterwards, Mr Maddison led a lively version of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt with children and guests joining in. This event proved to be very popular and it was great to have so much support. However, the children did not settle on just one fantastic event. Later on, they ran a tea and cake afternoon which also proved to be extremely successful. Many thanks to all those who attended, for all the help received and the donations of time, money and, of course, delicious cakes!
