AT the end of last term Barry Comprehensive School Sixth Form students raised funds for LATCH as part of their Welsh Baccalaureate qualification.
The students planned and organised a range of activities including a Teachers v Sixth Form football match, a raffle, guess-the-number -of-sweets-in-the-jar, bingo and a talent show.
The first prize in the raffle, a tour of the House of Commons for two, was won by Mr Davies; and the second prize of a voucher for some healthy fruit and veg at Jacquie's Greengrocer was won by Mr Green. Mr Carter's Year 8 class were really pleased to win the sweets!
The school has been a long-standing supporter of LATCH, delivering presents to the Oncology Clinic at Llandough Hospital for many years and now continuing to support the Children's Hospital at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff.
The school would like to thank Alun Cairns MP and Mr and Mrs Thompson for donating the prizes. The students are now one step closer to gaining their Welsh Baccalaureate qualification, having raised more than £200 for LATCH in the process.
