3rd April 2017

Throughout the spring term, we have been fundraising for Juvenile diabetes. As a school council, we came together to discuss what we would like to do in order to do this. We met with Scarlet in 6KN to discuss type 1 diabetes and how we could help. We decided to hold a competition involving how much sugar was in a jar of sweets. Children would be able to estimate the amount of sugar in the jar. The closest guess would win the jar of sweets for their class, as well as an additional prize; a £25 gift card for Liverpool One for the junior winner and a giant teddy for the infant winner. In addition to this, we decided to hold a ‘Dance for Diabetes’ event. Mrs Hindley also kindly donated an Everton football shirt, signed by the first team. We decided we would sell raffle tickets for this. After weeks of hard work by School councillors, particularly Olivia and Harry from 5RD and Dominika and Mia from 4DH, we raised £261 for the Juvenile Diabetes charity. We would like to thank everyone that participated in all these events and donated to this very worthy cause. We would also like to congratulate the winners of our fantastic prizes!
