Macmillan Coffee morning success

A magnificent £385.00 was raised for charity during the day!

Big thank you to all involved and especially our Learning Mentors Jane Torrance and Tracy Clark. 

Rushcroft  MacMillan Coffee morning 19th September 2014

We thought it would be a good opportunity for staff, outside agencies, parents and students to network but to also share a common element in that everybody has lost someone to cancer. This is an event that is supported by many organisations nationally including schools, banks and children’s centres around the country. We also wanted to hold the event in the Garden to show everyone the hard work that L & Q and the Gardening club have undertaken.  Staff and students donated cakes.

It was an enjoyable day even though it had a serious theme - cancer research. There was plenty of tea and cake for everyone. The rain did not stop play; this brought a lot of laughter with neighbours. There was a lot of networking between our visitors and staff. It was well represented with a rich variety of people, young and old.

Students mixed with agencies, parents and governors after school had finished. All were polite, well-mannered and a credit to Rushcroft.

EAL students played host and escorted visitors to and from the entrance - important for them as they could practice their English. They had also baked cakes to help raise funds.

The event ran from 9-11 am and then 2.30 -4.30pm which catered for staff on a full timetable to indulge after work and enabled us to welcome parents and professionals. The event was advertised around school and in Rush News.

We were lucky enough to have representation from:

Safer Schools Officer

Stow Resident Association members

Early Intervention Prevention (EIP)

Rio Restorative Intervention Officer

Parent Governor/Parent Champion

Property Developers L & Q

Organic lea

Waltham Forest Arts in Education

Parents & grandparents

Neighbours

Staff 

AMOUNT COLLECTED FOR CHARITY £385.00 (last year we raised £148.72).  As this has been a bumper year we are going to give Clic Sargent, the children’s cancer charity, a donation. Sebastian Ydema in Year 9 raised £25 with his own cakes for this particular charity.
