A Marvellous Way to Raise Money

Our Independent Learning Centre marked beloved author Roald Dahl’s birthday this term, with a week-long celebration culminating in a themed non-uniform day.

Pupils had the chance to compete for a ‘Marvellous Creations’ chocolate bar by earning stars from a wealth of activities at lunchtime.  These included a Roald Dahl book quiz, and creating a revolting recipe!  The winner was Year 9’s Ruqaiyah, with 9 stars.

The week ended with a non-uniform day, where for a small donation, girls and staff could attend school dressed as their favourite Roald Dahl character.  We had George, Willy Wonka, Oompa Loompas, the BFG and many more – a marvellous end to the school week.  In total, the non-uniform day raised just under £100 for Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.

“Roald Dahl’s books are wonderful,” enthused Librarian Mrs Jakso. “It was splendid to see staff and students in their costumes.”
