It was a day of fun and games as pupils fundraised for Comic Relief. The school council organised a range of Red Nose Day events throughout the day to raise both money for, and awareness of, Comic Relief.

Pupils marked the day with a ’wear red’ non-uniform day with the pupils donating money to ditch their school uniforms for the day. They also had the chance to splat their teacher in a wet sponge throwing challenge.

The High Crags pupils channeled their inner Mary Berry by baking up a storm to create some tasty treats to raise more dough for the cause.

The children were invited to design their own red nose, and take part in a red nose hunt around school. They also were asked to bring in their spare change to try to bury a giant red nose in money.
The day raised more than £700 for Comic Relief.

Principal Helen Ray said:

“The children have really been exercising their funny bones today and I’m very proud of them for raising such a great sum for such a worthwhile cause.”

Comic Relief is a UK charity with a simple purpose – to create a just world, free from poverty. Comic Relief does this by funding and investing in amazing organisations across the UK and around the world to tackle some of the key issues of our time. Since 1985, Comic Relief has raised over £1.25 billion. That money has helped, and is helping, to improve countless lives.
