Inclusion team host staffroom coffee morning

On Friday 29th September staff from the Inclusion Team at The Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College served up cakes and sweet treats to their colleagues as part of the world’s biggest coffee morning.

Students at the school were also encouraged to get involved in the spirit of the event by entering a European themed house bake-off competition. After judging the entries were cut up and sold to students during their break time to raise funds for the cancer support charity.
Garrick House’s Achievement Leader, Matt Owen, said “We chose a European theme for the bake-off because Tuesday was European Day of Languages. Our MFL faculty have been running a range of language based activities and this was a nice way to tie both events together. The students who entered the competition have clearly put a lot of thought into their designs.”
The bake-off competition was won by Apollo House students Ella-May Reesby and Ellie Purchon who created a French themed cake complete with chocolate Eiffel Tower.
Alison Davies, Headteacher, said, “Throughout the year our students, and staff, contribute to many different charities and we raise a lot of money which goes to good causes. By encouraging our students to support charities they get to understand how their donation helps other, less fortunate, people.”
