Valentine’s love raises lots of money for Prom  

Pool Academy’s Prom committee members are celebrating after their latest fundraiser collected more than £100.

The event was held close to Valentine’s Day and offered students the chance to buy a Rose for a friend, teacher or loved one. A label was attached so they could be delivered people during class.


Cakes were also on sale during break time to hungry students.

More than 60 roses were handed out in total and the Prom Committee raised £150.

Kirstie Conway-Baker, Geography teacher, said: “The Year 11's have worked really hard to pull these cake and valentines rose sales off and have now raised the money they needed for the photo booth. They have made more than they needed and are now thinking of prizes they would like to give out during the prom.”

This year the Year 11 prom will be held at Tregenna Castle Hotel, St Ives, on Thursday July 5.

Students will be given a three course meal and then there will be a disco.  The dress code for the evening is formal.  

A photo booth will be provided during the evening which will take unlimited photos.

Students are being offered a place on a bus which will travel to and from the prom.

The evening is organised each year for students to celebrate the end of school and say goodbye to friends and teachers.
