3for3 Week Supporting Local Charities
All week Claires Court pupils have been raising money for our annual 3for3 charity week. Every year group has been involved which each division choosing the charities they would like to support.
There were a whole host of fundraising activities across the sites such as selling cakes, welly throwing, guess how many sweets in the jar, obstacle courses and many more. Below are details of the charities each division supported and some of the more unusual activities they took part in:
Nursery - supporting Reuben’s Fight with a raffle which will be running next week as well.
Junior Girls - Year 5 held a car wash and raised £30 by washing staff cars, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 all brought in 5p coins to make a trail, on Friday Junior Girls had a pyjama day and Year 6 had a photobooth. The Year 3 teacher Miss Mansfield was a great sport and faced the wet sponge throw! The girls have been raising money for the Dolphin and Lion Ward at the Royal Berkshire Hospital. Some of the girls have visited the ward themselves or with family members.
Junior Boys - the boys fundraising takes place over the course of a few weeks, with cake sales and competitions. The highlight of their fundraising is their sponsored walk next week. Junior Boys are raising money for Rosie’s Rainbow and The Link Foundation.
Senior Girls - have been raising money with fete like challenges, over indulging on cake and sweets, disco dancing, karaoke and much more. Year 10 held a mocktail bar with delicious flavours, music and nibbles. There was also an Inter-House music competition - always a keenly contested and enlivening occasion. Senior Girls have been supporting Stand Out For Autism charity.
Senior Boys - as well as various activities across the school, the boys took part in a fancy dress Sponsored Walk. On their walk the boys stopped off at the Thames Valley Adventure Playground to see how the money raised can help. In addition to TVAP, Senior Boys are supporting Alexander Devine Cancer Trust and SportsAble.
Sixth Form - to raise money, the Sixth Form had a speed doughnut eating competition between Year 12 and Year 13. Mr Giles' Year 13s (Louis Beever, Alasdair Butler, Colette Ferguson, Jasper Giles, Rory Kidd, Chris Rayer, James Roach and Zac Sanders) were clear favourites as they always win, but Mrs Rogers had high hopes for her Year 12 (Oli Carr, Lucy Fegan- Earl, Jake Hjorring, Todd Muil, Lily Palmer-Moore, Jemima Robinson, Tom Stalker and James Tapner-Evans) this year. And yet again Year 13 were the greediest! The Sixth Form chosen charities are Foodshare, SportsAble and Rahab.
