After the devastating earthquake in Nepal, staff and pupils wanted to help our British Council Connecting Classrooms partner school, Gladstone Academy.
The school itself suffered minor damage but many of their pupils lost homes, family and belongings.
We decided to hold a Cake Café to raise money to help these children.
Staff and pupils donated cakes and children brought 50p to buy a cake and drink which they enjoyed in a café setting in school. Leftover cakes were sold to parents and carers at the end of the day.
Our International School Council members, Mrs Fay, Miss Gates and parent volunteers acted as waiters and sales people.
An amazing £400 was raised which will be sent directly to Mr Binod Kumar Koirala, the Principle of Gladstone Academy, so he can ensure his pupils in need receive the support they require as soon as possible.
