Felpham Community College students and staff celebrated the end of a busy and successful first half-term of the academic year by holding a non-school uniform day, fundraising for Dementia Support (Sage House) and improving facilities for students at FCC.
It is a tradition at Felpham that the Sixth Form Charity Committee always choose which charity to support for the first non-uniform day of the academic year. This year, for the October non-uniform day, they voted for Sage House at Tangmere. Sage House is a community hub which brings together local Dementia Support services – providing the latest support, information, advice and activities to those living with Dementia and their families.
Toby Clegg, Head Student at Felpham Community College, commented:
“We have had a really busy and positive start to the new academic year. Non-uniform day is always a great way to relax slightly on the last day and also fundraise. Sixth Form students voted to join in by wearing their PJs to school for the day. We also had our Sponsored Dog walk this week, and we already have lots of charity events planned for next half term, headed up by the Sixth Form Charity Commmittee and the FCC Student Council. These include selling poppies for The Royal British Legion, a donation drive for Bognor Foodbank, a Community Christmas Craft Fayre and a non-uniform day for Stonepillow. It is great that as a community, FCC tries to support both local, national and international charities.”
