AS always, kind-hearted Copley students wanted to do their bit for a range of good causes.
This year not only did the school on Huddersfield Road collect donations for Tameside East Foodbank but they also raised more than £500 for Save the Children and for the family of Martin Sullivan, who attended nearby Great Ashton Academy and who died last year.
In the build up to the Christmas break, students were set the ’12 Days of Christmas Challenge’.
Every day students were in school they were entered in a daily prize draw for selection boxes. For five lucky students who were in every one of those 12 days they also had an additional chance of winning £50 worth of gift vouchers.
Finally, as a reward for selected students Joel Rothwell, an up-and-coming singer, also performed on the last day of term and was a hit with the students.
Copley Academy would also like to hear from ex-students to set up an alumni group and have people come in to school and tell the students of their career success stories to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs, doctors, leaders and lawyers.
If you would be interested in supporting the Copley Academy Alumni network please get in touch with Jo Tidbury, assistant principal, on 0161 338 6684.
