Children in Need

This year Children in Need fell on Friday November 16. We planned a few events throughout the day. Firstly, pupils donated £1 to not wear school uniform – this raised over £400!

We also had an inter-house bake off competition run by Mrs Land the day before. The turn-out was brilliant; 35 students and 10 staff baked and decorated cakes, biscuits and buns. The next day stalls for each house were set up during break and lunch and these baked goods were sold for small donations. We even had several parents bring in cakes and biscuits which was lovely to see. Overall this raised more than £170!

An inter-house rowing machine competition was run by Mr Osborne at lunchtime for students and staff, to see who could travel the furthest during lunch. The results of this were:

1st – Titans (5063m)

2nd – Phoenix (4988m)

3rd – Griffins (4372m)

Our student council sold Pudsey ears, raising over £50. Last but not least, the Children in Need duck race sweepstake raised over £95…James Pond was the winner!

Huge thanks go out to every student, parent, guardian, staff member and grandparent who helped. Together we raised £769.62, money that will make a difference to young children throughout the UK

The breakdown of each house and its position is:

1st -Titans = £280.15

2nd – Griffins = £265.25

3rd – Phoenix = £220.83
