Children in Need
Our students went Spotacular for BBC Children in Need last week.
Lloyds Bank and BBC Children in Need’s exciting new schools fundraising campaign, The Big Spotacular, encouraged children and teachers to dress up in spots, sell spotty cakes and goods, and take part in spotty themed challenges, to raise more money than ever before for disadvantaged children and young people.
The Sixth Form Student Leaders and Year 11 Prefects took charge of the project and as part of the fundraising plans organised lots of fundraising activities including shaving the Headteacher’s head and a ‘Cream Pie the Teacher’ stall.
The day was a non-uniform day and lots of students came in Pudsey onesies plus there was an extra chance to get more spots at lunchtime at the face painting stall.
Students from all Year groups were busy baking delicious buns and cakes all week, plus there was some beautiful and unique artistry with Henna Hand painting.
Steve Evans, Headteacher said, “We always look forward to getting behind the BBC Children in Need campaign. The students had the opportunity to ‘own’ the fundraising activities, and it is interesting to see the impact it has had on their personal development. It’s really useful to build their understanding of BBC Children in Need, so they understand how every pound they raise will impact those less fortunate than themselves."
