Spotacular fundraising for Children in Need
Everyone at Blue Coat embraced this year’s Spotacular theme for Children in Need 2016. A non-school uniform day saw onesies and spotty items donned as children came to school in more comfortable attire. Mr Davies masterminded a Rio Spotacular whole assembly in the Sports Hall to kick-off the day in style. We welcomed our teams of “Spotty” athletes as they prepared to battle it out on an Olympic style obstacle course.
Thanks to the leadership of our Sports Captains, competition was fierce as they conquered the vault trying to land on the right spot, galloped on Spot the horse, foam fenced and mastered balloon volley ball.
Celebrations continued in Pre-Prep with Pudsey colouring and spotty biscuit decorating ready for a picnic in the gym.
Some of our pupils also did their own bit for this worthy cause and are to be commended. Holly and Emily’s Pudsey Bear shortbread and fairy cakes went down a storm in Cornwall as they spent a busy half-term break preparing their goodies and raised £30. Back at school Year 5 pupil, May Hadley organised a raffle and sold tickets in St Margaret’s House before and after school raising £112. Our winner Natasha Page in Year 4 was delighted with the prize of a hallmarked sterling silver hand-made ladies engraved bangle and stylish gentleman’s cufflinks made in May’s daddy’s workshop in the Jewellery Quarter.
We are delighted to announce a total £722.72 raised by Blue Coat for Children in Need this year. Thank you to everyone for their support.Published: December 9 2016
