We celebrated Red Nose Day at the Prep School on Friday, harnessing the ‘power of funny’ to raise money for Comic Relief.

To start the day, the children attended a special assembly led by Mrs Bailey, where she showed the children red noses from previous years and talked about how they had changed. The pupils learnt that this year there are 10 brand new designs that are for the first time ever, completely plastic free! Made from a natural sugarcane by-product, they are even biodegradable. As the greenest Red Noses ever produced, each design features a character who would be at home outdoors, such as caterpillars, badgers and ladybirds.

During assembly the children also learnt about the many ways in which the money that they had donated will be used to change the lives of those less fortunate than themselves. For example, £10 is enough to provide 40 meals for people living in food poverty.

After assembly, each class took part in a Red Nose Day themed quiz about all things red! There was red everywhere, with both staff and children getting fully involved in raising money for a good cause by wearing red clothing, red noses and donning as many red accessories as they could find. The pupils were even treated to themed cupcakes at lunchtime!
