A group of Year 11 students from Bower Park decided to raise money for charity to support a fellow student in their year group and his family. They requested that the school raise funds for the National Kidney Federation (NKF), which is a charity run for kidney patients by kidney patients. It was decided to hold a ‘wear something purple’ day on Friday, 23rd November. The event was hugely successful, and over £600 was raised. Many students paid £1 to wear purple – hats, jewellery, nails, hair, etc. Some paid a great deal more. This was a real sign of the strong community cohesion we have at Bower Park. Thank you to everyone who supported the NKF cause.
Congratulations and thanks go to Megan Smith, Rhiannon Smith, Macy Steans and Conor Pocock, who led and organised the day. They have each earned a Principal’s Award for their endeavours.
