‘Children in Need’ – Friday 14th November 2008
A number of students have asked if we can take part in ‘Children In Need’ day by having a non-uniform day. This is a very popular and worthwhile charitable cause and I hope that parents will be happy for children to take part. The arrangements will be as usual with children bringing in £1 as a donation to this worthy cause.
In this particular year, Autism Concern, based in Northampton, is in crisis and is facing closure unless it raises substantial funds by Christmas. We have a particular affinity with this charity at Caroline Chisholm School because of our Designated Special Provision for children with Asperger’s Syndrome and autism. I am therefore proposing that 10% of this year’s money raised for ‘Children In Need’ goes directly to Autism Concern.
