On Thursday 15th October, members of the Student Council at QEII High School were delighted to welcome Juana Warburton from the ManxSPCA to present her with a cheque for £649.42.

The funds were raised through dress down days, charity bake sales and sponsored walks. The Student Council members are now looking forward to their trip to the ManxSPCA to see how the money will be spent!

The Student Council, which includes students from Years 7 – 13 (age 11 – 18), meet weekly to discuss matters of their choice. This year one of their chosen charities is ‘Jade’s Place’ in Rebecca House. To raise money, they will hold a second hand uniform and ‘vintage Christmas jumper’ stall at the School Association Christmas Fayre on Wednesday 25th November. Delivering Christmas parcels and cards over the festive period and raising awareness of The Rainbow Flag Award are just some of the other things that the Student Council will take part in this year.
