Weydon School Fundraises for Children In Need

CIN 18 1Weydon School undertook fundraising for BBC’s Children in Need in their own unique way, inspired by the popular ITV show “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here”.

Weydon students came in dressed as their favourite real life (or fictional) celebrities; the costumes were extremely varied, from Lionel Messi to Buzz Lightyear! Around the school, at break & lunch, there were various activities around the school inspired by the show, including bush tucker trials, jelly “slugs”, “swamp water”, and a jungle sweets sale. Students from all year groups participated and the event was topped off by a ‘flash mob’ comprised of the teachers dancing to ‘Cha Cha Slide’ on the playground!

The entire event was organised by Year 11 students and was widely considered a great success by teachers and students throughout.

Weydon School’s Principal, Mrs Jackie Sharman, said “The Year 11 student leaders demonstrated outstanding leadership abilities and were creative and energetic. The event was an outstanding success and we were so pleased to have raised money for such a worthy cause.”

The event raised a grand total of £1840 for Children in Need.
