It was a fantastic effort by Smestow staff and students to raise £2,391.54 for Children in Need.

The cake sale raised £207, copper challenge £166, Mr Mayor’s masterpiece £140 and the rest was raised through the non-uniform day and other sponsored events.

Thank you very much to all those students and staff who both baked and bought cakes. Well done to 7Hera who held a class sponsored silence for a day, Ameena Akhtar year 13 for her superb henna designs and all the students who did the challenge and sponsored events.
