Friends of KGGS have been very busy...!
In October 2018, we started fundraising with our English and Design & Technology teams:
Led by a parent and two sixth form students, and helped by staff in English and DT, a team of Year Eight Tycoons created their own company, selling their Choco-Surprise product at local markets, and raising funds for a student workroom in English – where students in all key stages can meet with their teachers and English Mentors for extra help, or work in small groups together.
Students in Key Stage Three English also raised a whopping £900 on a Sponsored Spell.
A good portion of what was raised by Choco-Surprise also helped fund a 3D printer. And the students also chose to donate some of their profit to The Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity.
Supported by a Friend of KGGS who works at the University of Oxford, and our STEM Partners at Trent University in Nottingham, colleagues in Computing secured £3,000 from The Royal Society for an exciting Drone project we will run during 2019-2020.
