The Mount School raised over ��2700 for charity at their Family Day last Saturday 11 May.

The amount includes �1820 raised by the School�s upper Sixth Form in their Auction of Promises (pictured).

Deputy Principal Victoria Sherwood said �Supporting charitable causes is a vital part of School life at The Mount. This figure represents huge efforts from our students, their families and our staff. It is this proactive spirit of �giving back� that makes girls from The Mount so very unique. Special mention must go to Deputy Head Girl Tori Ellis for her hard work in bringing together everyone�s efforts to make the Auction of Promises such a success.�

Tori Ellis, who is in the Quaker girls� school�s College II year, said �It�s amazing how generous and supportive everyone has been. It just makes all the hard work worthwhile.�

The money will go into the School�s Charity fund, and at the end of the year will be divided between the Schools� three charities: the Okoraseona Kindergarten in Namibia, Cancer Research UK and Barnardo�s.

The Family Afternoon, which also featured craft stalls and activities, was rounded off with the School�s annual Summer Concert, which featured a choral rendition of songs from Les Miserables, and �Last Night of the Proms� classics, Rule Britannia (lead by Principal Julie Lodrick), Jerusalem and Elgar�s Pomp and Circumstance March.

Last year The Mount and The Mount Junior School raised over �5000 for charity.
