St Thomas More Catholic School raises money for NSPCC on Number Day
Friday 17 March 2017
St Thomas More Catholic School has raised £450 in aid of the NSPCC for Number Day, through a series of sponsored maths activities.
Students and teachers dedicated their time to numeracy throughout the day, making the subject fun, relevant and meaningful whilst raising as much as possible for the children’s charity.
Giovanna Pringle, Head of Maths at St Thomas More Catholic School, said,
St Thomas More Catholic School was proud to once again be supporting the NSPCC through National Number Day. Our Year 7 pupils worked extremely hard collecting sponsorship from friends, family and staff members and their solving skills were put to the test when they has to answer a number of tricky maths questions throughout the day.
Pupils raised an amazing £450 through their sponsorship of the maths quiz. Over the four years the school has been taking part in National Number Day, it has raised over £1000 for the NSPCC.
NSPCC Schools Service Manager London and South East, Janet Hinton says
Schools that signed up to Number Day have highlighted perfectly that maths can be a fun subject for children to learn and develop their skills.
We have had fantastic support from schools and children and we would like to thank everyone who got involved. They have helped the NSPCC to continue its vital work in keeping children and young people safe and protected.
Funds raised will help support NSPCC services.
