Our IB students have been raising money for the 24 Hour Race challenge they will be undertaking soon. The 24 Hour Race is the largest student-run global movement to end slavery with races in cities across the globe.
To fundraise our Sixth Formers have been organising fruit and cupcakes sales as well as non-uniform days. Their biggest project took part last Friday after school hours when they invited students from lower years to join them for a Big Night In.
Some 54 students joined to the fun and were treated to a school disco, a treasure hunt, face painting or hair braiding. For the sporty, there was an organised game of football and for everyone else, a showing of films, complete with snacks!
Everyone enjoyed the evening and many of us were surprised that the children just did not seem to tire – even approaching ten o’clock some younger pupils were still making dens out of cardboard boxes!
