PHHS Interact Update


On Wednesday 16th November 11 Interactors from across the years provided an afternoon musical activity for clients from Working World. We had a lot of fun singing and playing percussion instruments and then went to the arts centre to perform on the stage “I had never really worked with people who have disabilities, this was a new, exciting and enjoyable experience to have and I can’t wait for them all to visit again” Phoebe Bridges year 10. Well done to Ellie Brookes year 13 for organising the afternoon.

On Friday 18th Interact put on a fair in support of Children in Need, including games, cakes and even live music. The fair raised a fantastic £246 for disadvantaged children across Britain.

Guide Dog Day was our next event. We aimed to raise enough money to sponsor and name a Guide Dog puppy for a year by having a non uniform day and cake sale. We had three wonderful Guide Dog visitors and their owners, we raised over £1370 but it was not enough to name our puppy. Zoe Insley, year 13 has liaised with Guide Dogs UK to coordinate this project.

The annual Battle of the Bands was a huge success. The atmosphere in the Arts Centre was amazing as the Bands and solo artists performed. The staging of the event was a huge team effort led by Anthony McAspurn Y12 and £421 was raised.

A huge pile of vegetables donated by PHHS students and staff was dropped off at Caring Hands in the Vale, on Wednesday, to provide Christmas lunch for people in crisis in the local area.

The good news at the end of term is the Guide Dog total has been reached with the support of Year 9 who chose to donate the proceeds from their Christmas Fair to the PHHS Guide Dog fund. Look out in the New Year for more details of the puppy and it’s name.
