Raising laughs and raising money – Red Nose Day 2019
Red Nose Day 2019 saw our Prep School children join in the fun, raising laughs and raising money for Comic Relief with a giggletastic ‘joke-athon’.
Children from Kindergarten through to Prep VI came to school armed with their favourite gag in the hope of being voted the Red Nose Day Comedian of their class and going on to the ‘grand final’ of telling their joke in assembly.
A truly important cause, Red Nose Day not only raises money to help vulnerable people but provides a learning opportunity to help our pupils understand the issues facing young people across the world, and how the money we raise can help change countless lives, both here in the UK and worldwide.
In fact, just £3 could pay for crayons, pencils, paint and paper for children living in a Serbian refugee camp. £10 could cover the cost of 10 hot meals for a homeless person in the UK. So thank you to all our children and parents for your support. Together we raised a marvellous £114.
And Bridgewater’s winning jokester? Prep I’s Samuel, who took the prestigious comedy cup for his favourite funny:
Why did the man lose his job at the orange factory? Because he couldn’t concentrate!
