Churston students raised an incredible £1130.39 for Children in Need 2015. The theme of the day was “Bad Hair Day” with students and staff alike coming into school with dodgy dos, bad barnets and magnificent mops of all shapes, sizes and colours. Volunteers from Year 7 and Year 11 were also on hand to sell copious amounts of Children in Need wristbands, key rings and stickers as well as running “Guess the number of sweets in the jar” and “Guess the total amount raised by Children in Need” competitions.
Churston Ferrers Sixth Form also embraced the theme of “Bad Hair Day” for Children In Need and raised £285.90 by donating a £1, buying the Children In Need wristbands and guessing “How Many Jelly Beans in the Tub”. Prizes were given for the best “Hair Do” in Year 12 and Year 13 which was judged by Mr Simon Underdown the Deputy Head.
Rachel Brown, Sixth form Student Progress Officer said ‘A big thank you to all the students who donated £1 today and to the Sixth Form Events Committee for organising today’s event.
A special mention must go to Danielle Pomeroy, Callum Harper and James Woods in Year 7 who raised a monumental £77.08 by doing a sponsored silence as well as other fundraising events
Martin Skelly, Head of House was very pleased ‘Altogether raising the total amount of £1,130.39’.
Churston also attempted a World Record attempt for the largest Language lesson on Friday during lesson 4.Follow
