Sigma update

Wow what an action packed House assembly. So many amazing events going on within the four houses. 


Our house assembly focused on Giving. Kadija spoke about what giving meant to Sigma and how students can support Sigma house and their charity:


  • You can give your time, helping with events
  • You can give donations of clothing for recycling 
  • You can recycle your crisp packets
  • You can support the fundraising events
  • Pay your £1 for non-school uniform day 
  • Take part in the swimathon


With your support last year we raised over an amazing £2000.


With your support our money can help in the following way.

£40 sponsors a child to attend a therapeutic workshop. £75 allows a family to attend a fun day. £105 sponsors a family to attend family workshop. There are many more ways our money can support children and families at The Rainbow Centre. We are proud to support them again this year.
