QMA in the Community- rumours of an ice bucket challenge in school this week
Congratulations to the many staff and pupils who have participated in the Ice Bucket Challenge.
This involves standing in a bucket of ice cold water- then being drenched by even more water. The Challenge
is to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease (or you may have heard the American term ALS) or MacMillan Cancer. If you do participate, please remember to make your donation.
We thought you may enjoy seeing some of staff participating in the Challenge- feel free to forward your
pics if you wish to appear in next week’s bulletin!
