Sports Relief Week - 14th - 18th March
Sport Relief Week. The PE Department did a fantastic job in organising events for the whole week of Sports Relief.
Each lunchtime the PE department organised for pupils to take part in trampolining, 5 a-side football tournaments or staff vs student dodgeball. All the activities were immensely successful and played a fundamental part in raising money for a brilliant cause. Unsurprisingly the staff vs student dodgeball went down particularly well with hundreds of students rushing down to the gym eagerly awaiting the opportunity to throw balls at their teachers with no repercussions! Fun and laughter was a continuous theme throughout the week with the staff and students working together to raise money for Sport Relief. Well done and congratulations to everybody who donated and participated!
Students were also given the option to purchase a £1 wristband for Sports Relief and all 60 wristbands sold out within three days!
On the Friday, a sports fair was hosted in the Sports Hall, gym and main hall. The fair contained a variety of stalls such as; face painting, classic fun fair games, FIFA 16 on Play station 4, table tennis, trampolining and many more. Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 roamed the school throughout the morning taking part in these activities and helping raise an incredible amount of money. Mrs Hodgson and a group of her Year 7’s also spent time the day before baking lots of cakes and selling them on a stall throughout the morning, contributing almost £80 to our final total! Well done and congratulations to them.
We would like to say thank you to Sainsbury’s for kindly donating a variety of prizes for the winners of the raffle and stalls. Unfortunately they were unable to come along and run their own stall, but we hope that next time we can continue to work together to run this fantastic event. Thank you!
Huge congratulations and well done to the Sports Ambassadors for everything they did throughout the week, especially being exclusively in charge of organising and running the Sports Fair on the Friday. They each had responsibility for decorations, money collection, setting up/packing away, designing and running their stall (s) as well as much, much more! They were also given extra help by selected Year 10 students who also demonstrated strong leadership and organisational qualities. They are: Flo Morris, Leanna Adams, Dan Hamm, Louis Curl, Fin Dyer, Beth Readings, Charlotte Callaway, Jack Anderson, David Karavitis, Sam Fletcher, Katherine Clement, Tempany Burchett, Chloe Smith, Zaim Uddin and Robert Howell. Congratulations on doing such a fantastic job!!
After a week of activities and donations The Beaconsfield School have managed to raise a brilliant total of £579.56 for Sport Relief. Another £60 was raised in addition by selling the Sports Relief wristbands. Congratulations to everyone one that took part over the course of the week. Well done!
