Caring Brings Success
Pupils had fun with Pudsey dressing up in spotty clothing, cutting and decorating with spots and celebrating at the disco. We raised £202.
We had a very special visit to Senior Assembly. Jenni and Jayne from Signature Schools came to present a cheque for £147 to Clifton School Funds. A percentage of their earnings from all Clifton branded uniform is donated back to the school. So next time you need to purchase any uniform keep them in mind as you will be helping your school too. www.signatureschools.co.uk/ards-north-down/special-schools/clifton-school/
The Learning Without Walls initiative is a series of programmes all designed to get children learning outside in the natural environment with their schools, youth groups and families. It is a Northern Ireland-wide partnership between Lady Dufferin, the Dufferin Foundation and the Northern Ireland Forest School Association.
The Forest School Awards supports the training of teachers, youth leaders and families in their own community ensuring there are no barriers for participation.

Thank you to every one who sent in supplies for Storehouse. This photo shows a little of the huge donation we were able to make this year for such an important cause. https://storehousenorthdown.com/
At Christmas time, all our classes got together to decorate a Reindeer for the Helping Hand Charity which raises money for the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children. Various schools in the area also decorated a reindeer and they were all put on display in Bloomfield Shopping Centre. Customers could vote for their favourite reindeer by donating money into a slot on the top of the reindeer and all donations went to this great cause. Unfortunately our reindeer did not win, but we are delighted to announce that our reindeer raised a massive £586.56. Great work Clifton and thank you to everyone who voted.
