Red Nose Day is a fundraising event run by Comic Relief which aims to create a world free of poverty. The money raised is used to transform lives in the UK and around the world. As a school we believe that raising money for charity is a way of promoting a positive, caring attitude amongst our children.
Wear Red Day
This year for Red Nose Day we celebrated by ‘Sharing a Smile’. the children came in their red clothing and accessories to raise money for the appeal show on Friday 18th March. We took part in a PSHE session to discuss the meaning of Comic Relief and how our fundraising efforts can help support those in need. As a school we completed nose and spoon races, joke telling sessions, designing red noses, decorating biscuits, mindfulness colouring, and overall having FUN!
Staff Joke Competition
This year, we held a whole school Teams assembly where Mr. Malik shared with us four jokes that had been sent to him from each phase team (Early Years, KS1, LSK2 and UKS2). The children loved to critique the staff humour and voted on who the thought created the biggest laugh. Well done to our teachers in Year 5 and 6 who were given the title of ‘funniest Phase’ and received a certificate from Mr Malik.
It was lovely to have laughter fill the school!
Thank you in advance to our school community for the generosity showing in raising money for Comic Relief this year. Our office team are currently counting away the huge pot of donations we received and a total will be updated very soon. Harlow Green once again demonstrated its responsibility to help their local and wider communities.
