Last Friday we joined the rest of the UK in celebrating Red Nose Day 2023. Through our efforts we helped raise money for Comic Relief; their mission is to decrease poverty, violence and discrimination across the world.
Comic Relief has been an active charity since 1984. They raised over £55 million last year and in total they have donated over £1 billion to charitable causes. You can find more information about how your support helps them, by clicking here: https://www.comicrelief.com/what-your-money-does
Red Nose Day holds a special place in Drove Primary School’s heart as we think increasing the quality of life for vulnerable people is of the utmost importance. The event also gives us an opportunity to teach our pupils/students the significance of charity, kindness and understanding.
To celebrate Red Nose Day we invited all of our pupils to come in with crazy hair! During our Friday assembly we held a catwalk where the children showed off their hairstyles to the rest of the school. Prizes were then given to the winners with the wildest hair.
We were proud to see our staff and pupils wearing their red noses this week. Everyone had a fantastic time raising money and we are glad to say we support Comic Relief!
