A school in Northwood raised over £1700 on Red Nose Day through a range of fund raising events. Comic Relief received £420 of the sum and the rest was donated to the Woodlands Special Needs School in Harrow to help purchase an Eye Gaze Computer.
St. Martin’s School had a special Red Nose assembly, followed by a tug of war, including a teachers’ competition, where one patrol dressed up as super heroes. Sadly it did not endow them with any special powers and they lost.
A number of lunch time events were organised by the pupils, including: welly wanging, penalty shoot outs, hurling and a spellathon.
The highlight for many of the boys was the St Martin’s Got Talent contest. Pupils performed a range of acts from music to mime and magic tricks.
Perhaps the most amusing part of the day for the St Martin’s boys was having their remaining lessons taught by a tiger, clown, butterfly, dolphin and hornet: their face painted teachers.
Mrs Buckley, the charity organiser said, “Our pupils love using technology, so it really caught their imagination to raise money to buy an Eye Gaze for pupils who are not able to write or type.”
Keshav Samani in Year 6 commented, “My funniest moment of Red Nose Day 2015 was when the Nelson teachers’ team dressed up as super heroes and after two minutes they were absolutely thrashed!”
