The First charity day of the year | Newsletter

Before we talk about this year, we can announce that we raised a fantastic £10 491 in the last academic year, despite not being in school from the end of March.

The new (strange) year has started off with a brilliant socially-distanced charity event where the school did not fail to disappoint with wonderful dress-ups and a myriad of yellow outfits! A special shout out to Mrs Adams’ form in Year 12 for their dedication to Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, despite self-isolating at home.

As our first charity event, we (the Charity Prefects for this year) were delighted when Mr Trotter informed us of the agenda this year. We were disappointed to not have the opportunity to deliver the annual assembly announcing the event but instead, we put together a powerpoint with voice overs to ensure that everyone knew that we were still supporting the charities Macmillan and Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, despite the circumstances. The powerpoint was sent to all form tutors so that all girls were aware of what the day would entail. Of course, some changes had to be made aware of, for example, the lack of a bake sale this year, to make sure that we were all keeping safe.

We felt privileged to be able to continue ours schools legacy of being avid supporters of ‘Macmillian cancer support and Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity’.Even though we had to make changes to the day in order to make it Covid safe it was still as fun as it is every year .The effort of the girls was shown through their costumes and their participation in the small socially distanced picnics with a small groups of friends. We had to collect donations differently and we changed the way we chose the best dressed form, having one from each year instead of the whole school. We raised £1076 which will be split evenly between the two charities..
