Since the beginning of term, facemasks have been available at the school for pupils and staff who forget to bring one.

However, in order to raise money for charity, pupils in the School’s Interact team have come up with the idea of asking those wishing to obtain one of the disposable facemasks to make a minimum donation of £1, with the money collected going to Parkinson’s UK.

Karlene Douglas, the School’s Charities and Community Outreach Coordinator, said, “Of course pupils and staff will not be turned away if they do not have money to donate as safety remains the number one priority.

“Washable masks remain the way forward if possible for pupils, and also help to reduce single-use plastic waste.

“However, we’d like to ask anyone who needs a mask to consider donating to this worthy cause.”
