    Weʼve raised £565 to help fund new fish tank for School animal care course

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    On Monday 5th November, staff arrived in School to a Biblical scene of flood, destruction and horror, not seen since Anne Widdecombe was last on Strictly.

    Seriously though, our 12 year old acrylic fish tank decided to burst, flooding the classrooms and corridors with a tsunami of water and our prized collection of tropical cold water fish.

    Sadly, our insurers are unable to help us..... but you can!

    Due to the heroics on the part of our loyal technicians, only two fish were lost....

    Time is pressing, we have borrowed a small holding tank from our local Sea Life Center (thank you) but it is too small and only a temporary solution.

    We would love to replace our tank so our pupils, and future generations get to enjoy and study the fish as part of our Science and Animal care courses.

    We have been lucky to have such a resource to support teaching and learning in our school and it would be a real shame to lose it.

    If you can help in any way, the pupils and staff at the Wey Valley School would be extremely grateful.

    Thank you

      Dear all, Apologies for being quiet lately, but over Christmas and the new year, not much has happened as we await delivery of the new tank. We took delivery a couple of weeks ago and all the fish rescued and kindly looked after, have now been returned and the tank kitted out with plants, etc to provide a stimulating habitat for our fish. We are still working to ensure the area is as user friendly as possible. An official re-opening of the tank will happen in the not too distant future. Again, on behalf of the WVS.... THANKYOU!

      The students shouldn't lose out because of an act of cod.
