For this year’s Macmillan coffee morning, I wanted to involve the whole Academy and have an element of competition for the pupils to partake in. With TV shows like ‘The Great British Bake off’ and ‘Come Dine With Me’ being so popular, I thought we could peg different faculties against each other so the pupils could buy from their favourite subject. This element of competition allowed pupils to see staff in a different light. I also felt that this gave the pupils time to interact with staff on a different level - which I think is important to build solid relationships between staff and pupils.
In total we raised a total of £1050.13, beating last year’s total of £415.65.
