This year the school held Children in Need week with multiple events taking place to fundraise money. These events included The Great Pudsey Bake Off, a non-school uniform day, and Splat the Teacher. Students across the years took part in these events and as a school we raised over £1,000 for the charity.
On Thursday, The Great Pudsey Bake-Off took place with teachers and students baking for a good cause. The lines were out the corridors and the cakes old out by the end of break. On Friday we had a non-school uniform day. Students brought a pound and got to wear whatever they wanted for the day. As well as the non-school uniform we had Splat the Teacher. The event took place at form time, was the students chance to get their own back on the teachers. The twelve teachers who volunteered to be splatted came prepared wearing goggles, bandanas and even wigs and were greeted with a face full of whipped cream from the students. The event was a sellout and all for a good laugh and a good cause. Lewis in Year Eleven said “The event was great, I loved it. I also got to throw something at the deputy head which was a bonus.” Phoebe in Year Seven said “It was such a good time, so much fun and it all goes to a good cause!”
Over the week the school has raise over one thousand pounds which is higher than the school ever has before. We’d like to thank the teachers who so kindly took part in the events, the parents for giving money, the students for taking part in the events and The Junior Leadership team who alongside Mr Adams who organised it all.
