PUPILS at King’s Ely Acremont used their entrepreneurial skills and superhero powers to raise funds for charity.

Year 1 pupils created their own flamboyant superhero capes and ran a superhero café in the school playground. The children decorated biscuits and cookies, and also made their own posters to promote the event before opening for business to fellow pupils and staff.

Other King’s Ely Acremont pupils and staff made donations in return for a variety of refreshments, resulting in more than £60 being raised for Asthma UK, which is the leading asthma charity for the one in eleven people living with asthma in the UK.

Head of King’s Ely Acremont, Jonathan Willcocks, said: “The children worked incredibly hard to set up their Superhero Café. They designed posters and displayed them prominently around the school building to help advertise the event. When the time came for the café to open, each child took on a particular role which included being in charge of queue control, handling money, serving the customers, as well as replenishing stock. It was a delight to witness the excitement and enthusiasm with which they carried out their fundraising event.”

King’s Ely Acremont and Nursery pride themselves on offering a superb early education rather than simple childcare; a dynamic curriculum based on self-discovery and learning through play teamed with the expertise of caring, experienced staff and an exciting, spacious and homely setting.
