Red Nose Day

Head Boy and Girl Team

Red Nose Day

Any situation involving either cake or teachers in costume always garners an incredibly positive response at High Storrs School - last Friday managed to combine the two, and was certainly no exception to the rule. Over five hundred students crammed themselves into every nook and cranny of the school hall, and a queue to enter the Bake Sale wound its way far down the corridor throughout lunch, until not even a broken biscuit was left. Almost two months of hard work and planning on behalf of the Head Team went into the Comic Relief event, but by the time we had finished, over £781 had been raised for a profoundly worthwhile cause, and definitely felt like a mass success given the massively enthusiastic response.

Inspired by RuPaul and Chrissy Tiegan, our Head Girl decided to break away from some of the more traditional fundraising activities (although the Bake Sale went down extremely well, raising almost £200 alone!) and invited the teachers to participate in a Lip Sync Battle. After a lot of persuasion, along with some mild coercion and bribery, we managed to find ten willing volunteers, who put on the show of a lifetime! Including numbers such as Salt and Peppa’s ‘Push It’, courtesy of the Lyceum team, and Britney Spears’ ‘Baby One More Time’ (along with a very familiar outfit worn by Mr Jeffrey), Mr Haigh, as Ed Sheeran, and Mr Mallaband, as Stormzy, eventually stole the show with their rendition of ‘Shape of You’.

A huge thank you needs to be given to all of the teachers who participated, our wonderful Head teacher, Ms Tasker, for hosting the event, and Mrs Walcott, who raised an incredible £182 with her Sponsored Silence. Throughout the day, High Storrs was abuzz; it was an incredibly uplifting atmosphere, and the overwhelming support on behalf of students and teachers alike was breathtaking, a wonderful way for us as a Head Team to end our term.
