Comic Relief

Harrowden Middle School is organising a major dance event to take place on Friday 18th March, which will promote working together to raise money for Comic Relief’s ‘Red Nose Day’. All members of the school, including staff, are dressing up as either super heroes or cartoon heroes, from 1.30 – 2.30pm.

 

The school have liaised with their local lower schools to organise a mass dance event on the school field.  So far, staff and children from Stephenson Lower School and Shackleton Lower School will also be taking part.  This means that over 1,200 individuals will be involved in carrying out Comic Relief style dances together to such music as the ‘Hokey Cokey’, ‘The Birdie Song’, and ‘YMCA’.

 

Cllr David Sawyer, portfolio holder for Children’s Services, at Bedford Borough Council, said: “Fundraising can teach children to have compassion for others who are less fortunate. This type of event is a great way of challenging the pupils’ fundraising creativity and at the same time can help make a real difference to an individual or organisation in need.”

 

Two years ago Harrowden Middle School did a mass conga line for Comic Relief which was very well received and was shown on national television.
