The Blue Coat School
On Friday 24 March, hundreds of red nosed children and staff gathered for a Whole School Assembly led by St. Margaret’s House. The assembly started with a show stopping ‘Put a nose on it’ House dance. Complete with rapping, dabbing and dancing everyone was thoroughly entertained.
It was then time to invite pupils to a ‘Pick your teachers’ nose competition’. Four members of staff entered the hall heavily disguised and sporting a red nose, but who was hiding behind it? Thanks to the clues given, we were able to identify Mr Hill, Mrs Jefferson, Miss Keeber and Mr Darby!
Amid the laughter and fun, the important lesson of the day shone through. Listening to the story of sixteen-year-old Ikmatu from Sierra Leone, we were reminded that we can all give to others if we set our hearts and minds to it. Ikmatu helped to transform her community through her hard work and dedication to cleaning the streets and telling others how to prevent the spread of disease through better hygiene.
Our non-school uniform day and cake sale raised a wonderful £986 for Comic Relief. Thank you to everyone for dressing up in red-themed outfits and for the many delicious donations in support of this worthy cause.Published: April 4 2017
