Dear Parents, Carers and Community Partners
Thank you for your support this term, which for me has been full of both sadness and joy. Many of you have sent in messages regarding Mr Dickinson as well as thank you notes to staff for their work with your Year 11 children and all have been very much appreciated.
Our emphasis now moves to fundraising to purchase a defibrillator and students have asked if they can hold a “Wear red for Andrew day” on Friday 6 June. Arrangements are that students may wear a red item of clothing or accessory; this can be a hat, top, t-shirt, gloves, shoes, socks or trousers and pay a minimum donation of £1. All the monies collected will all go towards the purchase of the defibrillator unit. Red has been selected as it has a clear link to the heart and the item which we are trying to purchase, as well as being the colour of Mr Dickinson’s favourite team Liverpool. In this way it is different from our more usual civvies days when children have a wide choice of what to wear. I hope you will be able to support us in achieving our target of £1000.
