SIXTH FORM STUDENTS FUNDRAISE FOR COMIC RELIEF
24 March 2021 | G Denison
Friday 19th March saw Northallerton School & Sixth Form College participate in Red Nose Day. Students from across the school were given the opportunity to attend school in non-uniform in exchange for the small donation of £1 in support of Comic Relief.
Year 12 students Laura and Hasan posed the idea to the Sixth Form Student Council in hopes of raising money for just causes. Both students then got to work on creating promotional videos to share with the school which aimed to explain the purpose of the event to the school and provide an explanation of how the donations were to be collected in a covid-friendly manner.
In addition to this, Grace Kennedy also a Year 12 student shot a short video promoting a ‘How Many Sweets in the Jar?’ challenge, in the hopes of raising further donations. There were 131 sweets in the jar and Mrs Fearnside won with a guess of 134! Congratulations to Mrs Fearnside.
The school community raised the phenomenal sum of £878.32 for Comic Relief and we are hugely grateful for all of the contributions made by staff and students to just causes. Well done!
