Jeans for Genes Day took place on September 22nd 2017. This annual event raises money for children who are born with genetic disorders.
Children with these disorders, (caused by a variation in their DNA), are supported through this campaign by funding for care and support. The charity that we chose to raise money for was The Smith Magenis UK Foundation.
Both students and staff at school were given the opportunity to participate, by wearing their jeans to school and making a donation to a worthy cause.
This year Shevington High School raised £520 towards Jeans for Genes! A big thanks to everyone for taking part!
