Since its launch in 1988, Red Nose Day has become something of a British institution. It’s the day, every two years, when people across the land can get together and do something funny for money at home, school and work.
Comic Relief spends the money raised by Red Nose Day to help people living tough lives across the UK and Africa.
At Keelman’s Way we came into school dressed in red clothing or in our pjamas. There was a photobooth set up where we could dress up using silly props and have a photograph taken.
We raised a grand total of £431.31
Here are a few pictures to show how much fun we had!!
This year’s World book day was celebrated by various story events in school. We all enjoyed some wonderful stories by some very talented people. Everyone got involved in singing and dancing- it was great fun.
Each class was asked to make a story using PowerPoint. Stories included ‘Farmer Dan’, ‘The Lambton Worm’ and ‘A book of magic potions’. Some of our Post 16 students created their own presentations using moving clip art and video clips. Prizes were awarded during assembly for the best effort.
Classes were busy making funky bookmarks and we held a book sale to raise money for newbooks. The end to the week was marked with a marvellous fancy dress day where we saw lots of characters from our favourite storybooks, such as Peter Pan, Harry Potter and lots of Disney princesses to name a few.
We had a very special guest to open our marvellous new library. The legendry Ray Spencer did us the wonderful honour of unveiling our new learning space. After a re-vamp with new shelving and more desirable design it now offers an exciting and welcoming environment, new seating and furnishings add to the comfort and atmosphere.
After plenty of cake, coffee and balloons we all enjoyed a truly wonderful end to a great week.
