Lots of fun at the Charity Day!

Students come together for a very worthy cause

On Friday 20th June, Chepstow school staff and students took part in a charity afternoon to raise money for three charities in memory of a former colleague, Helene Roche and student Harrison Marshall.

Students from year 7-10 and planned and constructed stalls to raise money within their forms. The event took place on the school playing field in glorious weather where students who already contributed to non-school uniform day, also had fun taking part in over twenty stall activities which ranged from ‘I’m A Student Get Me Out Of Here,’ ‘Welly Throwing’ and Lucky Dips. Sixth form students were also included by providing the music and canteen staff provided refreshments where all the profit was given to the charities.  In total the event raised over £1000.

After the activity, an intrepid group of fifteen members of  staff started the arduous journey to take part in the National 3 Peaks Challenge. The staff successfully completed the challenge of climbing, Ben Nevis, Scarfell and Snowdon in under 24 hours and raised in excess of over £3000.
