Every year our Sixth Form charity representatives organise a week of fun as an opportunity to raise money for our three charities. This includes lunchtime events and Fancy Dress Friday. This year’s events included Human Kahoot, Rap Battle, Guess the Teacher, Man vs Food, and culminating in Battle of the Bands at lunchtime today.
The events help raise money and awareness for our three Sixth Form charities: Grassroots (a Christian charity that provides support for children in Tanzania and other third world countries), Launch Pad (helping young people and businesses make the best start in life) and The Sussex Snowdrop Trust (a local charity which provides care for families whose children are suffering from life-threatening illnesses).
