On the 18th of November, Bloxwich Academy held a ‘Spotacular’ day for Children in Need. Over a hundred cakes were made and sold by generous pupils and staff. Pupils and staff paid £1 to wear their own clothes for the day and soft toys had been donated for a prize every time tombola. Mr Hall kindly constructed the tombola machine which was a fine piece of craftsmanship. The event took place during break time in the dining hall and included a surprise performance by Florence Nkomo in Year 11. Mr Seager also took to the mic, but thankfully spared us his singing! Other fundraising included guess the bunny rabbit’s name and how many sweets are in the jar.
After school, pupils made donations to stay behind for Children in Need disco where Mr Chamberlain had the pleasure of shaving off Mr Strachan’s beard for the collection. The grand total of our day’s fund raising totalled £855.91, which deserves a big thank you to everyone who helped and supported the day’s events.
Well done all.
