Cancer Research UK Race for Life
On the 20th October 2018, we held our annual Race for Life here in school. Once again, the weather was on our side and everyone was hugely excited about their race. The Year 11’s were first to take to the course for their last race with us, followed by Year 10, 9, 8 and 7. It was so lovely to see everyone and I mean everyone taking part and flooding the school with lots of pink clothing and accessories. I am completely overwhelmed and humbled by the generosity of every student in the school and the contribution they made, no matter how big or small. This year, we have excelled ourselves again and raised a staggering £11000 for Cancer Research UK and the Breast Cancer Unit at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital! We are blown away by the amount raised! To each and every one of you as students and staff, I extend our thanks to you and everything you did to support this cause as a school. I would also like to extend our thanks to all parents, carers, family and friends, who kindly sponsored the students for this event. I think that you will all agree in saying that we are certainly playing our part as a school in beating cancer. Thank you :)

Good Causes Week 2019
Our annual Good Causes week took place from the 11th-15th February 2019. Our Challney Voice chose the two charities this year. Keech Hospice and Young Minds were our chosen charities for this year. The buzz in school was as always fantastic, with everyone doing their bit to help others less fortunate than them. Market Place was popular and the array of stalls and talents that some of you displayed were simply amazing😊 We raised a grand total of £4820 in this week! Thanks so much to all students and staff for making this possible!
