The Red School Goes Red for Comic ReliefPosted on: 19th Jul 2018
Woodford Green Preparatory School rises to the challenge of going red for Red Nose Day with style, music and humor.
As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, Red Nose Day brings the entire nation together to ‘do something funny for money’. Woodford Green Preparatory School decided to get involved again this year and help raise money for this cause.
Comic Relief is always very well supported at WGPS and a brilliant reason to put on a concert. All the school’s instrumental ensembles and choirs had been rehearsing during the term preparing pieces to make the audience laugh and think.
Before the concert a Year 6 student stated, "The Choir has been learning songs for the Red Nose Day Concert. I love the songs, my favourite is 'Bonkers' because we sing in harmony doing silly verses. I think this will be a great success because it is for charity. I also think this might be our best concert yet! This will be a great Year 6 memory for me".
On Friday 24th, everyone was asked to come to school in non-uniform and wearing something red. For the children’s entertainment, there was a very special, surprise assembly - a staff fashion show. The contestants pulled out all the stops in some hilarious, eye-catching designs and dance moves on the catwalk.
It was a fantastic event and the children thoroughly enjoyed it. We are proud to have raised a total of £568.30.
