Gervase House Charity Day

Published Tuesday 14th of May 2013 10:33:36 AM

The annual Gervase House Charity Day at St Benedict�s School raised over �500 for Marie Curie Cancer Care, the charity which provides support to people with terminal cancers. What particularly impressed the House Captains, who chose this charity, was the way in which Marie Curie allows cancer sufferers to be closer to their family by providing this care to terminally ill patients in their own homes or in Marie Curie hospices, while offering support to their families.
Year 9 House Captain, Rebecca Walker, who helped to organise the day, describes the events:
The day began with House Captains selling daffodils which not only looked particularly stylish, but showed the support which pupils and staff at the school were giving to Marie Curie. Break time saw a monumental cake sale with a huge selection of goodies, so there was something that appealed to everyone. The Krispy Kremes unsurprisingly vanished within the first five minutes but luckily there were other options of cakes, cookies and brownies. ICT teacher Mr Brown really got into the �spirit� of the day, and allowed students to get their own back in the form of sponge throwing. At 1.00pm the karaoke and nail painting both opened for business. The Cloisters immediately filled with students and teachers alike, all wanting to see who�d be brave enough to make a complete idiot of themselves first. �Milkshake� was a popular choice of song for the daring (and comically off key) singers! The nail painting was a success as well, and many people were pleased to be able to get away with wearing bright nail polish around the school, the boys especially getting into the whole experience.
