Supergirls on Parade for Children in Need
Friday, 14 November 2014
Hesketh House was filled with superheroes today as the girls dressed up as their personal heroes and joined the ‘Be a Hero’ campaign for Children in Need.
As well as Supergirls, Batgirls and many other traditional superheroes, some girls also dressed up as literary characters, including Harry Potter’s Hermione Granger and Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games, and many more. There was even a Maleficent based on the recent Angelina Jolie hit film!
There were also plenty of worthy ‘every-day heroes’ represented. Lots of girls dressed as athletes and sports starts, such as Beth Tweddle or Jessica Ennis-Hill. Yet more came to school wearing doctors’ and nurses’ outfits, and two girls were costumed as Florence Nightingale. The more unusual and creative costumes included baker Mary Berry and Queen Elizabeth II!
There were even two of Hesketh House’s teachers represented: Lana Davies in Year 5 as Mrs Labbe, and Imogen Ferrier in Year 3 as Mrs Marden. Both girls have been inspired by their teachers and chose them as their superheroes for the day.
The girls brought in a minimum donation of £1 for Children in Need as part of the event. All together, they raised a grand total of £231.66!
Beech House Infants’ School and the Junior Boys’ School also held Children in Need events to raise money for this worthy cause.
