The boarders held a cake sale last Tuesday which turned out to be a huge success. We raised £51 towards the adoption fund for the much adored ‘Nautilus’, the penguin that we saw on our boarding trip to Colchester Zoo last month. We would like to say a big thank you to Mrs Swallow, Miss Mann, Mrs Collin and Mr Reeves who baked delicious cakes for us to sell.

Our next project to help us raise the £125 needed for the adoption is the selling of hand-made Christmas cards and gift tags at school events. We would like to thank the parents and staff that bought items from us at the Year 7 and 8 Progress Evening last night. We now have just over half of the money we need to pick up a penguin!
