Christmas Traditions Support Charities
Tuesday, 18 December 2018
The Girls’ Division has once again raised money for charity this festive season through much-loved Christmas traditions.
As the end of term approached, girls wore their festive best for Christmas Jumper Day. Everyone wearing Christmas jumpers, hats, socks or tinsel decorations donated £1 to raise money for the School’s charity of the term, Fort Alice.
On the same day, Year 10 put on their fun-filled Christmas Post assembly. Reality TV stars and pop singers rubbed shoulders with elves, reindeer and Father Christmas himself in a series of short sketches created by the Year 10 forms, much to the amusement and delight of the audience. The assembly kicked off the year group’s festive fundraising through cake and sweet stalls open during morning break and lunchtime.
The annual Ceremony of Carols was delightful as always, and held a retiring collection in support of the Against Malaria Foundation.
On the penultimate day of term, the Prefects’ Panto put everyone in a festive mood. ‘Bolton School: A Series of Unfortunate Events’ featured caricatured cameos from every department as the teachers tried to figure out who was responsible for so many items going missing, and when the mystery was revealed the tale ended with a creative musical finale. The Prefects’ Panto raised money for Freedom4Girls, a UK charity fighting period poverty by supporting women in the UK and worldwide with sanitary kits and menstrual health education.
