Sports Festival Raises Funds For CAFOD

Year 9 and 10 basketball players

Around the school pupils have been busy with their Advent fundraising for CAFOD’s World Gifts.  Years 9 and 10 held an Advent Sports Festival featuring a netball match, a basketball game and a football match.

Pupils donated a fee to either play or spectate at the matches.  Year 10 were the overall champions of the Festival, winning each of the three matches, although the netball and basketball were closely contested.  Mr Coates, who organised the Festival, said:  “There were some pupils who played one night and came and watched the other two nights which showed incredible support to the fundraiser and their year group. Something that really pleased me was the spirit that all three games were played in, there was so much laughter and good will.”

Overall, the Sports Festival raised £110, with Year 10 raising 60% and Year 9 40% of the total.

Well done to all the pupils for their initiative and to the tutors for helping with the Festival.
