Students are presently collecting old mobile phones as fast as possible. The reason for such fervor is that Jedward will come to the school which collects the most and the student who brings ten old phones in will gain a homework pass.
The weather couldn’t have been better for the Inter Class Hockey Tournament which was held in the school on Thursday last. All money collected from this fund raising event will go to Tanzania.
