AN art café has been set up to raise money for charity.
The 90 students had to design a project which would raise money and justify why they had chosen the charity they had.
They presented their ideas to the class and a panel of judges selected what they thought were the best ideas.
The Art Café – the first of its kind at the school – was opened on two days, where students displayed and sold their artwork, took commissions and held a cake sale to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society and the RSPCA.
Siobhan Brignal, ADT teacher, said: “This project was a great success. It was an opportunity for students to give to charities which they had personal experiences with and were passionate about.”
Year 9 student Ava Robertson-Gray said: “We chose to support the Alzheimer’s Society because my step-grandad died of Alzheimer’s over a year ago.
“He was in a care home for four years as we slowly lost him. I cherished every moment I had with him and chose the charity in memory of him. It is a very important charity to me as they can help other families and people going through and suffering from the disease.”
The event raised a total of £176.80.
