At the beginning of the year, Y8 voted for RAIN (Rotherham based animal rescue charity) as their charity of the year following a Dragon’s Den pitch activity which saw Luke Howard and Joe Wood from 8L winning the final vote.
This week sees Y8 forms leading a variety of charitable activities from Dodgeball tournaments to Sponsored Silences to Lip Sync Battles amongst many others at breaks and lunchtimes. The week will culminate in a whole school non-uniform day on Friday 7th April that will see even more money raised for RAIN.
Lauren Sanderson the Deputy Charity Manager at RAIN has already emailed to send her best wishes to the year group and her thanks for the efforts gone to by the students.
