There was plenty of excitement at Kennet Valley School as staff and pupils joined in with Red Nose Day on Friday March 18. In addition to wearing bright red clothing, everyone was encouraged to attend school with ‘Mad Hair’ and to pay £2 for the privilege.
Emma Russell, Headteacher, said, “Children and staff sported brightly sprayed or glittery hair and some even came to school with wild wigs on! Comic Relief is a charity that supports people around the world. They help children and their families to live free from poverty, violence and discrimination. This includes funding organisations that are supporting people right now in Ukraine, and those attempting to cross the border.
The school council also ran a tuck shop at break time to raise extra money for the charity too. Children could buy popcorn or a choice of fruit for 50p to enjoy. The money was added together and in total we raised a fantastic £153.00.”
Sarah Hues, the teacher who works with the school council, said, “I am so proud of the children’s creativity and desire to support such a worthwhile charity. Well done to the school council for running the tuck shop, and thank you for the support of all the parents and carers who helped to make this day a success.”
