Unlimited photographs thanks to cake sale

A successful cake sale has helped raise enough cash to provide unlimited photograph prints at this year’s prom.


A group of Year 11s baked a range of tempting cakes to sell before the Easter break. The students spent their own time creating the treats the night before in the school’s cookery classroom. They were then sold at lunch and break time in a classroom.

The sale proved very popular and raised so much money that the Prom Committee have now met their £150 target unlimited photograph prints.

Kirstie Conway-Baker, teacher at Pool Academy, said: “The bake sale went really well and we have now hit our £150 target.

“I was very proud of the efforts put in by the Prom Committee and it has been a pleasure to work with them.”

Jodie Phillips, Head of Year 11, said: “Nineteen Year 11's turned up to bake in aid of their prom and it made me incredibly proud to teach at Pool Academy.

“The committee have worked hard to raise money for the event in July and we look forward to sending the students off in style that evening.”

The Prom is due to take place at Tregenna Castle, near St Ives, on Wednesday 3rd July. There will be a three course meal as well as music and dancing.

Miss Conway-Baker said: “It is looking like it will be a fab night and a lovely way to say goodbye to Year 11.”
