School Council

logoOur chosen charity: Approach- a charity supporting people with dementia in North Staffordshire.

The charity with the most votes which will become our chosen charity for this year is Approach, a charity which works in our local area to support people with dementia. We will support this by working with them to become dementia friendly.

We all thought this would be a very good idea and it would be good to help our local community.

APPROACH-NEW-LOGOOn Friday 14th October, Will Boyce from the charity will be coming into school to meet the school council and discuss ways we could raise money for the Approach charity. He will also be introduced to the school in celebration assembly.
