Taunton School International Middle School
Reassured by the Christmas Spirit in Kingston St Mary
As Christmas was approaching, we were looking to purchase a tree for our entrance hall.
It was recommended that we spoke with Mr Herbert, one of our neighbours in Kingston St Mary, as he raises money by providing Christmas Trees in return for donations to SURE. He supplied us with an absolutely beautiful tree which filled the School with Christmas spirit. As a School we felt we would like to do more for the charity. The children here at Taunton School International Middle School held a special Christmas Competition where they paid ‘£1 a go’ to guess the number of baubles, the height and the cost of the Christmas tree.
We also opened our doors to the local community for a Christmas Celebration Morning. Our newly formed Funky Music Group sang a few Christmassy tunes and donations were collected.
Vicky Gordon, Publicity Coordinator for SURE, very kindly came on behalf of the Charity and talked to the children during assembly. She explained in more detail how the money raised was allocated and how the next project, a synergy imaging system, will enhance specific treatment areas of the body. The School’s Prefects and Form Captains presented the cheque for £150 to Vicky Gordon in the grounds of The Grange in Kingston St Mary.
