Pupils dress up as key workers to raise cash for charity
PUPILS from Green Lane School have raised hundreds of pounds for charities after returning from the half-term break.
In their latest project, children arrived dressed as key workers in support of the BBC’s Children In Need, raising almost £150.
Pupils donned soldiers uniforms, doctors’ overcoats and stethoscopes and firemen’s helmets for the fun day last Friday. Some daring pupils wore fake beards as they impersonated their headteacher, Rob Goffee. Earlier in the month they raised cash for the Royal British Legion to mark Remembrance Day.
Mr Goffee said: “Mr Graveston, who had been in the Scots Guards came in and talked about his experience and Remembrance Day.
Mr Goffee and the former soldier appeared in the school’s main hall.
It was then lived streamed via Facebook into the various classrooms so children could remain in their social bubbles. Parents could also watch the live stream on the school’s Facebook page.
The livestreaming has proved to be a great way of including the whole school in events such as collective worship. Mr Goffee said: “It also means the parents can see it as well. The children have been amazing – they have been so full of joy to be back at school and see all of their friends.”
