South Shore Academy took part in the National NSPCC Number Day on Friday 5th February.
The Maths Faculty at South Shore Academy signed up to support the NSPCC by celebrating maths in our school. NSPCC Number Day is a fun, nationwide maths fundraising event for children and young people of all ages that helps raise money to support the NSPCC.
During the day we ran different events/activities that raised money for both the charity and the school whilst also aiming to raise the profile of Maths.
Pupils were allowed to wear an item of clothing that has a number on it, for example a football shirt or a cap alongside the rest of their school uniform. Donations were made of £1. During form time pupils played Bingo at a cost of 20p a play and during maths lessons, all pupils participated in a ‘BIG MATHS QUIZ’
Money raised will enable many more children and young people across the UK to have a safe and happy childhood.
