Fundraising for CAMFED

 

 

Before Christmas the whole of FCGS were involved in raising money for Camfed. The school raised £3165 which, once doubled under the government’s aid match scheme, is enough to pay for 35 girls to be educated for a whole year. Here, in their own words, is how the students reached such a fantastic total.

Year 7 were given the task of completing a sponsored walk around Lillie Rec. Students were asked to find sponsors from amongst their family, friends, neighbours and teachers. All the students were determined to raise as much as possible to help give young women in Africa a chance to be educated.  Ikraam Hassan 7M

Year 8 and 9 raised money for Camfed by taking part in a sponsored readathon. All of the students brought in their own books and it was amazing to see such a range of genres.    Suhair and Akira 9L

Fulham Cross joined forces to create a tremendous Christmas fayre filled with a variety of wonderful stalls. The goodies on offer included delicious hot chocolate, breath-taking 3 tier cakes and handmade festive gifts. Oh, and let’s not forget the magical Christmas songs that were performed by our gifted vocalists Lama 10H

Year 11 enjoyed the inaugural FCGS sleepover. The night started with a two hour long dance party with the best music and huge doses of fun. We want to thank all the teachers who helped make this possible. We’re so lucky to have been able to share this experience with all of our closest friends. Shatoo and Maria 11H
