Today all of the Springbank children came to school in their onesies, to raise money for research into type one diabetes. The children all had a lesson where they learnt about the condition, which currently affects four children in school. They found out what living with the condition was like and talked about their own differences. In the afternoon, the whole school came together to find out more about diabetes from Mrs Bradshaw, a type one diabetic and nurse. The children all behaved beautifully throughout the assembly asking sensible, sensitive questions and listening carefully.
The whole day in school has been a great opportunity, not only to raise money, but also awareness of the condition.
