Recently, pupils and staff from Chilworth House Upper School have immersed themselves in a range of activities. From fundraising fun to interactive learning and more, here are all the details courtesy of Michelle Bailey, the school's family liaison officer.
Jeans for Genes Day
The school community donned their denim for Jeans for Genes Day. The annual fundraising campaign is for Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by a genetic disorder.
Everyone contributed to the cause and all together raised over £50.00.
Ice cream, microscopes, and more
Year 7 pupils have been enjoying getting hands-on with activities. They rolled up their sleeves to make ice cream, learned how to use microscopes, and mastered using hand tools in their DT lessons.
Blankets for everyone
Michelle Johnson, Head Teacher, co-founded Oxfordshire Kindness Wave and their supporters, Project Linus, make handmade quilts and knitted blankets for babies, children, and teenagers who have experienced trauma and are sick. They have kindly gifted pupils their creations for the taxi ride to and from school to act as a source of comfort each day.
Michelle was sent 54 blankets and will be taking delivery of more in the coming weeks.
How wonderful is their news update? Well done everyone.
