On Friday 18 November 2016, Attleborough Academy joined the rest of the nation in an attempt to raise as much money as possible for Children in Need. The day was packed full of different fundraising activities organized by staff and the Sixth Form Presidential team in the weeks leading up to the day in order to make this aim possible.
Everything was kick started first thing by a whole Sixth Form ‘mannequin challenge’ which has been viewed by hundreds on social media. Students got into the spirit of the day by paying £1 to wear something spotty and by lunch time had the chance to partake in a variety of activities in the Gym. These varied from a penalty shoot out to decorating cupcakes. In the spirit of “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here”, things got a bit messy with our “trick or treat” boxes in which students retrieved Pudsey tokens from mystery substances in an attempt to win prizes. Many students came away scattered with colorful spots after seeing one of the Sixth Formers for face painting. The Academy even witnessed our Lead President, Aaron Cahill, walking throughout the site covered in balloons and spots. Check out our twitter pages to see some of the cupcake creations and Amy’s face paint artwork if you missed out @AANpresidents.
To add to the funds raised on the day, Kiara Oluyole ran a ‘Spooky Scary’ competition throughout the Academy which proved very successful among the creative writing lovers.
The day proved amazingly successful, raising an amazing £763.88. Roll on the next fundraising event at Attleborough Academy!
