Glebelands School entered into the spirit of Children In Need, as their Year 10 students launched their support for the charity.
On Thursday 15th November, the sports hall was taken over for a ‘Beat the Keeper’ competition where students from all years attempted to score 3 past Year 10 goal keeper James, who managed to finish the day without three goals being scored past him. At the other end of the sports hall there was a basketball challenge against the clock to score as many baskets as possible in one minute. Molly Taylor won with 12 and took home Mr Hepburn’s (Year 10 Head of Achievement) university basketball.
Friday 16th November started off with staff donning their “spots to raise lots”. For break time, Glebelands staff members and pupils had baked cakes for a charity coffee morning which saw the delicious treats fly out “like hot cakes”. The funds raised were added to the overall total.
Other fundraising activities included student v staff sports where a group of Year 10 boys, took on the might of the teachers with Mr Cooper from the Mathematics department joining the PE department. It was a very close game where the teachers came out on top 8-6. The second part of the activities saw the teachers challenged again by a team of Year 10 girls in netball. Mr Wood from the Science department joined the fold and helped the teachers to a 3-0 victory before the bell stopped play.
Finally Mrs Staples, Head of Learning Support, rallied the Year 10 students together to do a car wash over Thursday and Friday where they did a sterling job and raised over £100 for their efforts.
The total raised by Glebelands School was in excess of £1,000.
