DT Christmas Fundraising Fair
On 12th December Year 7 pupils hosted the first DT Christmas Fair as part of their Enterprise project.
Pupils worked in small teams to design and make a batch of Christmas products that could be sold to raise money for a local charity.
All products were manufactured using a variety of materials/ ingredients e.g. Textiles, wood, plastic or food. During the project pupils delegated key job roles to each member of their team i.e. Project Manager, Production Manager, Creative Design Manager and Marketing and Finance Manager. These job roles enabled pupils to further develop their Personal Learning and Thinking Skills.
Year 7 pupils were raising money for The Trussell Trust Food Bank in Cheddar, and on 15th December they presented The Trussell Trust with a cheque for £474.81. The Trussell Trust were truly grateful to receive the money raised from the DT Christmas Fair as this helped to support many families during Christmas time
‘I am very proud of all the Year 7 pupils because they have put in a lot of hard work and shown great dedication in wanting to make this Christmas Fair a success for such a worthy charity.’
