Tasked with the responsibility of hosting an afternoon of activities for Years 7, 8 and 9, the group planned a number of ways they could encourage people to donate, before marketing the event, setting it up and then managing the day itself.
Taking place towards the end of the school day, student guests were charged £1 each to wear their own clothes instead of school uniform and had access to a range of things to do including a roller disco, dance mats, an inflatable assault course and a crossbar challenge competition where the winner could walk away with a signed Stockport County shirt.
However, the most popular part of the day by far was the ‘soak the teacher’ activity, which saw Mr Goodall, Mr Cheetham and Mrs Nicholls bravely volunteer for students to pour buckets of water over their heads and throw wet sponges at them in exchange for a donation to charity.

Assistant Principal Mrs Scullion said: “The students were really passionate about bringing this project to life and can be extremely proud of everything they achieved on the day.
Their task certainly wasn’t an easy one but they planned it meticulously and it definitely paid off as a good time was had by all!”
After covering all of their costs, over £200 was raised on the day – the money will be donated to our school charities.
