St. Michael's School (Granville Road, Southfields) has once again had a very successful Lent Appeal. Over the past month, the school has worked hard to raise money for a variety of charities that support the work of carers and those in the caring profession.

This year's theme has been 'Caring for those Who Care'. Among the charities supported by the school was the 'Honeypot Children's Charity' which provides respite and out-reach support for young carers. The pupils of St. Michael's carried out chores for friends and family to raise money for this fantastic charity.

A great deal of money was also raised for 'The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity' to help them create new facilities for young patients. Pupils 'busked' in the playground to collect money and there was also the 'Headteacher Challenge'. Every year the Headteacher, Mrs Ann-Marie Grant, carries out a challenge voted for by the children! Last year it was a 'Strictly Come Dancing' competition and this year it was an Olympic-style obstacle race which took place on Thursday 29th March. The sun shone and lots of money was raised for the new cancer unit.

St. Michael's is very proud of the way that the whole school pulls together to make a positive difference to the local and wider community.
