Mr Acher has praised ‘a fantastic achievement by the whole school’ as the funds raised through the Gigathon charity musical event passed the £1000 mark.
Prep put in an amazing effort raising £281 through Mufti and the Prep Spring Concert.
Street Performances raised £169.
The main Gigathon Event, Senior Department Mufti, drinks sales etc. made £461.70.
We received a special donation from the Rotary Club of Teignmouth of £100.
‘This gives us a grand total of approximately £1006 – WOW!’ says Mr Acher.
‘This is a wonderful effort and the figure could still go up further. Thank you so much to students, staff, parents and other supporters for everything that you did,’ he added. 'The funds raised will make a real difference to the 2 charities we have been supporting: AIMS in Dawlish which supports families with disabled children, giving them a break as a carers; and the Calabash Trust/Huckleberry Foundation that delivers the projects we work on in the townships of South Africa.'
