  • Fundraising at Highdown

    Published 03/01/18



    On the 14 December, Mr Franks and Ms Duncan took eight Year 7 students to Reading’s local food bank; Readibank. This was the culmination of Year 7’s ‘reverse advent calendar’. Instead of receiving something each day, students were asked to bring something in from home for it to be donated. Students were allocated a specific day and were asked to bring something in to donate, if they were in a position to. Year 7 did fantastically and should be very proud of their efforts. The students who accompanied the drop off should also be very proud of the way they represented Highdown.
