News > Children in Need

NCW celebrates Children in Need every year and it’s always a fantastic week so Charlie and I were determined to make this one as successful, if not more, than all the previous weeks.

We kicked off the week with a lunch time of sponge throwing. A benchful of (sort of) willing teachers waited for students to throw cold, wet sponges at them. At 50p for 3 throws and £5 for a whole bucket, it was cold, damp but great fun.

On the Tuesday we had the Great NCW Bake-off. We had 8 participants and all the cakes were amazing but coming out on top was Mr Hinds and his Pudsey sponge cake. These were sold on the Wednesday and Thursday at break times.

The highlight of the week came with the NCW talent show on Thursday. We had acts ranging from impressions to piano but coming out on top were Ali and Harvey with their beat-boxing/rap. CONGRATULATIONS BOYS!

Over all, the week went better than either Charlie or I could have ever hoped for. We raised £503.49, more than has ever been raised before! It was truly rewarding and the staff and students alike are all feeling proud.
