Fulston Students Smash Their StayAwake Record!
This year for our annual StayAwake, the Sixth Form students chose a new charity to support.
This year for our annual StayAwake, the Sixth Form students chose a new charity to support. On Friday the 8th of November 2019, 179 Students and 22 staff took part in an all-night 'StayAwake'. This means staying in school from 7pm until 7am the next morning and raised funds to support Demelza House. The Sixth Form students chose Demelza as it is a local, supporting those that may not live a long life, to live a full life.
During the night there were a variety of activities to keep the students awake, this included an energetic dance aerobics session, which Demelza kindly organised to support our event; followed quickly by an incredibly popular Just Dance Off; a quiz game show in the early hours run by a very enthusiastic Mr Westby; Mrs Crawford again ran a very successful ‘Bake-Off’ competition demonstrating a wide variety of creative bakes – Domino’s eat your heart out; Mr Patey showed tremendous endurance refereeing the 5-a-side football match and then worked with Mr Raher to deliver a fast-paced 2am Bench ball; Mr Rayfield and Ms Taylor were joined by 6th Former Robyn Harvey and dazzled the volunteers with their wonderful artistic flair by applying glitter to the majority of the Sixth Form faces throughout the night.
Miss Davies said “The night was a huge success and we were so proud of our Sixth Form students. All students have been wonderful raising funds far beyond our expectations, one particular student, Oliver Tribe, raising £190. Overall figures are still being finalised, however we are confident that it has been the most successful year yet raising over £7800. We are hoping that with a little more fund raising this week, we may make it to £8000!!!!! Thank you to everyone that contributed towards such a successful this event”.
