Tutor Twinning led to this fundraising idea with a difference.
The two classes RpGTC and EgASP joined forces to take part
in a Sponsored line write in a traditional classroom set up.
GTS pupils, including Mr Cooke and Mrs Sparrow wrote as
many times as they could, “Hama and Adama deserve an
education!’ They raised £83.42 for the Farakunku

school for the year. What a good start they have made.
