Dear All,

The Spring Term has always been dedicated to fund raising for various local charities and we have always raised a fantastic amount of money.
This year, we will be supporting and raising money for Asociacion Autismo Sur. A local lady set up the only association in the South of the island for families with autistic children after her own son was diagnosed and she found there was no localised help. Every centre was based in either Santa Cruz or La Laguna. She is now in the process of moving the charity from a small, shared room in El Mojon to bigger premises so that she can provide high quality support and specialised care. All monies raised will help towards achieving the goals of this charity.

The fund raising activities planned are;
Friday 5th April: Wear Your Pyjamas to School Day
Tuesday 9th April: Junior Cake Sale
Friday 12th April: Bingo

On a personal note, I will also be trying to raise money for this charity by running in the Las Galletas Half Marathon on April 7th. However, I'm only running 10km! Any donations would be greatly appreciated!

Finally, a diary date;
Wednesday 10th April: Inter School Sports Day. This year we will be hosting the day at the pitch. All parents and families are warmly invited to support us. More information will follow in the next week.

Many thanks,

Mrs L Estevez

Head of Juniors
