Well done to our Year 13 Applied Business Studies pupils on raising money to buy a defibrillator for the school.

The Year 13 Applied Business class, taught by Mr Loveridge decided to raise money to buy a defibrillator for the school. The defibrillator is a useful item which can potentailly save a life, so they decided that they would try to raise £800 to pay for the defibulator.

This event was held on the 21st October 2016. The class went around the school to inform everyone of the details. Two of the pupils went to the assemblies prior to the event to raise awareness of the event and to try to raise as much money as possible. They asked everyone if they could wear one item of red clothing and pay £1. They went around the registration rooms and assembly to try to raise the money, and at the end of the day they raised £750!

The pupils involved were: Callum Samuel, Corey Edwards, Tianna Casey, Dafydd Morgan, Jordan Thomas, Ellie Penells, Jessica Davies, Leah Parry, Ciara Power and Niamh Buckley.

Dr S M Mitchell, Headteacher, said "I am very proud of the pupils for their hard work in raising the money for a defibrillator. This is a most worthwhile cause for our school and local community."
