School raises £250 for Marie Curie

Pupils from Cross & Passion College and Ballycastle High School held a ‘Social Morning’ on 22nd March to raise money for Marie Curie. The event was organised by members of the collaborative B.C. Joint School Council, a venture which has teamed up 8 pupils from each school to make life for all pupils the best it can be.

he council thought it was time they hosted an event to support local charities and following a vote the chosen charity was Marie Curie.  The 16 strong team rallied around and a wonderful time was had by all. Each member baked two dozen buns in addition to the popular chocolate fountain with marshmallows and beautiful fruit donated by Scott’s Farm Shop (Sydney B Scott & Sons) Gateside Road Coleraine. There was also a tuck shop, tea and coffee. The boys from the council arranged for the use of a Nintendo WEE for the event from BHS giving all there present the chance to show off their best dance moves. The Social Morning was a relaxed affair which provided a fantastic opportunity for pupils from both schools to mingle and get to know each other better. In total £250 was raised which will be presented to Marie Curie before Easter. The Joint School Council wishes to say thank you to everyone who helped make the day possible and who came along to support such a worthwhile event! The Joint School Council was established in December 2010. This year the council have really focused on trying to get a pedestrian crossing between the two schools which will make it a lot safer for pupils from both schools to cross the road. So far thing are looking good, it will hopefully go ahead in the not too distant future.
