Kyrle Students Supporting Macmillan
John Kyrle High School was galvanized into action in a fun-packed
day on Thursday 5th October raising money for Herefordshire
Macmillan Cancer Treatment Unit. Fun was had by all - students
and staff! The 6th Form provided wonderful leadership in
all the activities. The dress theme for the day was "doctors
and nurses" and didn't they look fantastic!
Clements, Phil Arbourne and Arthur Degan-Knifton raised
approximately £250 in sponsorship for having their legs
waxed in front of their 6th Form friends - not too painful!
Other members of the school dressed up and collected money
as well. Rory Trevethan, in Year 9, dressed as a fairy and
raised approximately £150. Buckets were used to collect
money; some students threw in £10 notes.
6th Form concluded the activities of the day by devoting
themselves to 'bag-packing' at the tills in Morrisons, where
many customers made generous donations. The school is particularly
grateful to Morrisons store for their support.
Vinall, Head of S.P.A.C.E (Social, Pastoral and Citizenship
Education) commented 'I am so proud to be a member of such
a generous and caring community - very much part of the
ethos of John Kyrle High School'.

to enjoy books with children from as early an age as possible
