Jeans and cakes for genetics sake

KIND-HEARTED pupils and staff at Crompton House School swapped their uniform trousers and skirts for jeans to show their support for Jeans for Genes.

Many pupils and staff took part, including all the leadership team, to raise awareness and funds for Genetic Disorders UK.

The sixth former pupils organised a Cake Competition, with the Year 7 forms competing against each other to see who could bake the most for a Cake Sale.

There werre hundreds of cakes brought into school, and more than £1,000 was raised from the cake sale and other donations.

Mr Karl Newell, Headteacher, said: “Our first charity event of the school year was a great success.

“The Jeans for Genes campaign caught the imagination of the pupils and staff and it was really pleasing to see so many taking part.

“The response of the Year 7 pupils was terrific. We have never seen so many fantastic cakes and everyone enjoyed eating them at lunchtime.

“The new Year 7 pupils have settled in very quickly and they have really enjoyed working with the older pupils to raise funds for such a good cause.

“Earlier this term the sixth form assembly and charity teams presented assemblies to the whole school to raise awareness about genetic disorders.”
