On Friday 19th May, we asked the whole school to swap an item of uniform for an item of blue clothing for a small donation. Why Blue? Blue is the official colour of Dementia, symbolising memory and forget-me-nots. As a House, this charity is really important to us. Many of us have seen the impact dementia can have on family members. Since the pandemic, smaller charities have struggled so any support we can provide them is greatly appreciated.
Alongside this, several other events took place. Eleven teachers ran a 2.5km mini marathon with students giving their support by cheering on their favourite teacher, as well as having the opportunity to guess the winning time. Mr. Hindman heard lots of cheering as Chris West finished the mini-marathon just as the rest of the field reached the halfway line…
Students also had the opportunity to buy tickets to win our Blue Hamper of goodies, and this fantastic prize was won by Libby Johnson (9Sherborne). At break time there was also a cake sale with all cakes flying off the stall. We are pleased to announce that we raised a total of £265 for this worthwhile charity. Thank you to everyone for their support.
