Wednesday lunch time resounded to the beat of the LipSync Battle. There were brave entries from students in all year groups, who were prepared to strut their stuff and make us roar with laughter in aid of The Smile of Arran, especially Terry Shortt and Taylor Nicholson- again! Maisie Smith and Elizabeth Curnock sang delightful solos and were very impressive too. Floor space was at a premium as the hall was packed for the event with generous students and staff, who donated their cash to watch the stars. Thank you to Mr Lewis-James for organising the Battle and to Max Felton and Amelia Bell who organised the contestants. As a finale, the staff raffle was drawn for the giant Smile of Arran cake, which had been kindly donated and raised over £90; the lucky winner was Ms Linsdell!

Aspiration House Captains, Sports Captains and the House Council launched Aspiration Charity Week to all students in a series of assemblies to all Houses. Once again Aspiration had chosen unanimously to support The Smile of Arran Trust in memory of Arran Tosh who sadly died as a result of a brain tumour.

Mrs Alison Tosh, Arran’s mother, spoke eloquently about her son to Aspiration students in an assembly and was truly inspirational in her courage and about the work of the Smile of Arran Trust.
