Treviglas College’s Porth house held its annual charity day last week in aid of the charity, Shelterbox. Students were encouraged to wear non-college uniform following the theme of ‘Bright Lights, Big House: Wear Neon’, and arrived in college in a dazzling array of bright colours. Each tutor group within the house ran a stall of their choice at break time to raise money for the cause, including games and a range of innovative activites, and the hall was buzzing with those buying their pasties and treats.
The whole college spent time during the week learning about and discussing the charity, which culminates with the high spirits of charity day itself. This year, students were recognising the global reach of a local charity – being inspired by the huge potential of great ideas.
Mrs Maule, Head of Porth house commented, ‘It is always lovely to see enthusiastic students working together to raise awareness and funds for a great cause.’
Alex, a Year 10 student added, ‘Charity days are always fun, with some cool stalls and an excited atmosphere around the college. It’s great to see the teachers getting involved too, with some crazy outfits!’
An impressive £900 was raised on the day, almost enough for two valuable Shelterboxes to provide help for ,those in need.
