Best year EVER!
This year for our annual StayAwake, our 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 a local charity to us, 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 my 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 dazzled us with their wonderful artistic flair by applying glitter to the majority of the Sixth Form faces throughout the night. 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.
