We’ve raised a total of £40,000 for the school charities this year.  We had a highly successful annual Charity Day on Monday, raising over £11,000 in a day.  In the  morning Form 1s slid down a water slide, Form 2s swam, Form 3s held an old-fashioned sports day, Form 4s walked to Pitch Hill and back, Form 5s had a readathon and in the afternoon Form 6s ran their stalls on Top Pitch, the Perry Quad and the tennis courts.IMG_6087

The stalls, which included many imaginative sporting challenges, pillow fights, welly wanging, a Chinese stall, tombola, nail parlour, slippery slope, arcade games, throwing the sponge at those poor teachers and the ever popular  waffles, popcorn, milkshakes and anything edible!

The afternoon’s success, with £1500 raised, means that Form 6 pupils have achieved their target to sponsor and name a guide dog in memory of their friend Austin Neve.

Meanwhile donations of bicycles, no longer needed or broken, have been gathering on the 5 a-side pitch to be renovated and sent to different children’s charities and Form 4 raised a further £177 from their book and DVD sale in aid of Community Action Nepal.
