Thank you to everyone for supporting our Children in Need and Type-Onesie Day at school today by wearing Onesie’s or pyjamas and making a donation. We raised an amazing £583.80 which we will split between the two charities! We all took part in the Joe Wicks Children in Need workout first thing this morning, then in assembly we learned a little about the history of Children in Need and about some of the ways the money raised is spent. We also learned a little about Type One Diabetes and how this condition is manged by Lewis, Elissa and Neve who did a fantastic job of telling us all their pumps and checks they must do. Well done Lewis, Elissa and Neve for explaining this to us so well.
On Wednesday 13th of November 2019 I got to turn on the lights for the Castle of Lights at Edinburgh Castle. I was asked to do it by Audrey Jones who is the Castle of Light Project Manager with Historic Environment Scotland. It was so much fun because Nick King of the castle introduced me to everyone and then the crowd counted down from 3. When I pressed the button, nothing happened and everyone laughed but then the music and the light show started.
