Macmillan Coffee Morning

Last Friday students arranged a MacMillan coffee, they came together with their nearest and dearest to bake and bring in loads of cakes and treats.

Staff ran a competition where students and parents, with a few subtle hints, had to guess which member of staff had made each cake. This went down brilliantly and helped us to get to our grand total of £150!

Miss Sohun and Miss Prince said “A big thank you to the staff, parents and students who generously donated cakes and baked goods for our annual coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Through the school community and their participation, we had our most successful morning to date! Also a big thank you to everyone that took the time to attend and make this such an amazing event!”

 

YPA has a good understanding and built a rapport with my son. He has been happy and well cared for to the point where he has met his full potential and thrived. The right balance and structure has provided for my son’s complex needs. Thank you for your continuous support.  Parent
