RAG Week is here

Raising and Giving Week – Mon 27 Feb to Fri 3 Mar

Led by our Deputy Head Girls for charity, Zeynep and Monica, and supported by the rest of the Head Girl Team and Ms Kilburn, this is always a highlight of the school calendar. This year we are raising money for our whole-school charity, United World Schools, with all the proceeds going to our link school, Chewaa School in Nepal. Situated in Sankhuwasabha, the school supports the indigenous Rai community, with 1,200 people in the area, 240 of them being of primary school age. We are their only direct partner school, so it is important for us to raise as much as we can during RAG week to support them, giving them the means to buy new resources and fund local teachers.

Events for the week include the Year 7 and 8 disco, a World Book Day ‘Fairytales and Stories’ themed non-uniform day on Wednesday 1 March, and returning favourites of whole-school Eliminate, Teachers’ University Challenge, staff v students benchball, and sales of t-shirts, doughnuts and pick & mix to keep everyone’s energy levels topped up.
