Netherhall students are model citizens

Pupils at Netherhall Learning Campus High School have passed their latest test with flying colours after raising over £400 for local charity Kirkwood Hospice.

As part of their GCSE Citizenship studies, year 11 students were challenged to come up with innovative fundraising ideas and report their findings as part of their portfolio of work. The school also invited Kirkwood Fundraiser Gabrielle Butler along to present to students and to take part in a Q&A session.

The students were all eager to get involved, undertaking a number of fundraising activities within school and in the local community to raise funds for the Dalton based Hospice - from non-uniform days to dying their hair blue!

Gabrielle said: "This partnership is going from strength to strength. This is the second year we have assisted with their project work in its current form. It is a fantastic way in which to engage with these dedicated young adults and we are delighted that they have managed to raise £425 for the Hospice. We wish all the students every success in their forthcoming exams.”

Citizenship teacher Miss Sarah Taylforth and the Year 11 students are pictured handing over the cheque to Kirkwood’s Gabrielle Butler. Each pupil was also presented with a certificate of achievement to thank them for their hard work. Many of the students will be using these certificates in their portfolios.
