On Friday 13th October, we held our Halloween Carnival event, organised by the Head Girl Team with boys from The John Lyon School.
This event is held annually to raise money for CRY in memory of Shannon Powell. Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) is a charity which raises awareness of young sudden cardiac death and supports the families of victims.
Students from Years 10-13 came along for an evening of dancing, Halloween fancy dress and spooky excitement to celebrate the end of a busy first half term! The students had lots of fun thanks to the super DJ Charlie; even some of the teachers got on to the dance floor to show off their moves. With the help of the Sixth Form, the Performing Arts Centre was transformed into a spooky hall, filled with creepy decorations and lights. The atmosphere was brilliant as everyone arrived in their Halloween costumes; our Deputy Head Girl, Poppy, was by far the scariest, dressed up as a pumpkin!
The evening was a great success and we managed to raise over £400 in aid of CRY. The Head Girl Team would like to thank all the teachers and support staff for helping the event run smoothly, as well as our Charity Prefect Team for organising the selling of sweets and drinks on the night.
