Pupils at St Thomas of Canterbury School have been putting their time to good use by raising hundreds of pounds for those in need and supporting this year’s recent Red Nose Day.
Staff and children at the school in Carisbrooke have been taking part in activities and dressing in red to support Comic Relief. The children took part in several fun tasks including identifying objects in red jelly, trying to burst water-filled red balloons, and sporting activities – raising a total of £470 to go towards the Comic Relief Fund.
Head Teacher, Maggie Sanderson said:
“I am so proud of the whole school community – families, children and staff who showed such generosity at a time when many people have their own worries and needs.
“The children took up the mantle of having fun whilst also making a difference for other children!”
