Hove Park students and teachers had an hilarious day of fun, laughter and fund raising, collecting an estimated £700 for Comic Relief.
Students from Years' 7, 8 and 9 got creative making their faces funny for money in a day packed full of fund raising activities from competing in an obstacle course or taking part in quizzes, to Mr Clarke shaving off his long hair, comical quizzes and, of course, wonderful cakes galore.
Mr Hindman, Deputy Head Master said: "We're proud to say that every student has been involved in fundraising, from participating in a obstacle course or to donating money to join in the quizzes. This year's event has been full of generosity and shows the compassion and care our students have for others less fortunate."
The obstacle course was particularly popular with over 1000 school students and staff scrabbling and jumping over course for Comic Relief. The course stayed open until 6pm so parents and other children in the community could join in the fun and have a go. All participants of the course were presented with a comic relief Keynote and were given a briefing before taking on the tough course, which had taken over 30 man hours to build.
Mr Lowie, PE teacher, who with his team, organised the course said: "The obstacle course alone has now raised over £400. It was great Hove Park school was raising such vital money and on Friday night our contributions were apart of comic relief moving over the £1 Billion pound mark of money raised since it started back in the 80s."
Commenting on the days events Ellie from Year 9 said: "It brought the community together and I felt part of a strong and determined team of fundraisers."
A big thank you to everybody involved especially to Mr Lowrie and the PE team!
