Abilities in Me
Almond Hill, along with many othe schools, held a fundraising day on Monday 25th September to raise money for a fantastic charity. As most of you will know, The Abilities in Me Foundation writes children’s stories based on real children with a range of conditions. Money raised goes into: creating more books to help raise awareness, supporting school SEND projects and running family support events which they are looking to expand across the UK. If you would like to find out more, please go to: www.theabiltiesinme.com. All teachers read at least one book from the range to children during the day. Children were invited to wear an item of brightly coloured clothing to school to highlight that although we may have some differences we are mostly the same. Parents of children in Years 4, 5 and 6 will remember that the author of this book series visited the school (free of charge) last year and donated her entire series to our school library. Children were truly inspired by her visit and her books so this is a lovely way to support the charity.
As a school, we raised an impressive £183.19
