We are Whole Hearted Designs  a small group of students with mixed abilities, we have been working very hard together and we came up with some great ideas to form an enterprise group to run alongside our weekly art lessons. We had a very busy few months, initially discussing and deciding on our ideas then the producing process started. Our theme was Hearts and we added tartan to our theme as it was the year of the Homecoming.

We wanted to raise money for a touch screen monitor to use in our learning base, as well as have fun and learn new skills.  We chose the British Heart Foundation because it is important to us. When Meg was a baby she had to have an operation. In total £930 was raised so we are donating 10% of our sales which we are delighted to announce is £93.00.

A representative from the British Heart Foundation came to school recently and below is a picture of the pupils presenting the cheque.
