In terms of fundraising, our students, parents and staff have always shown great enthusiasm for supporting a wide variety of charities. However this year our Red Nose Day activities far exceeded expectations by raising over £1,700!
To kick off the fundraising, students and staff paid £1.00 to dress casual for the day and our supply of red noses sold out in record time, whilst in the Dinner Hall, a selection of wacky cupcakes were a popular treat to buy at both break and lunchtime. Students were also able to commission Miss Howard for one of her well-known face paint designs.
Our Year 7 Nurture Group sold hand painted plant pots, complete with Spring flowers, which had been pre-ordered by both staff and students in the weeks prior to the event, and students also took part in a fun assault course.
Far less enjoyable for Mr Laybourn and Mr Bushy, was a hilarious-to-watch sponsored leg wax, with Mr Bushby thanking his over-enthusiastic PE colleagues, Miss Short and Miss Humble, for his ultra-smooth legs!
Well done to everyone at King James - once again you have proved you are fundraising champions.
