Castle School Children in Need
Putting the fun into fund-raising
Staff and students at Castle School joined forces last week to raise as much money as possible for Children in Need. As well as raising money through non-uniform, different year groups all ran their own charitable events during break and lunchtime, aimed at raising funds and having fun at the same time. Activities ranged from wacky races between staff and Year 7 students, with new headteacher Mr Docherty getting involved, to brave teachers getting sponged by students (in spite
of the freezing weather!), cake sales, games, quizzes, face-painting and much much more.
Mrs Bradford, Deputy Headteacher, said “The atmosphere is school was fantastic. It was lovely to see so many students getting involved and having a good time.”
The school had set itself a target of raising £2000 from the day. By the end of Friday, over £2200 had been raised, which has now been handed over to this worthy charity.
Students at Castle School are planning more fund-raising events during the year, as each year group has identified its own charity that it wishes to support, some of them local.
Mr Docherty, headteacher, explained: “ Our school vision is to be at the heart of our local and global community, so activities that encourage students to think of others who need their help are something that we are keen to encourage.”
