Staff Netball Match Helps Mother Theresa’s Charity
Friday, 17 May 2013
Bolton School Girls’ Division Year 11 pupil Ananya Baksi organised a netball match between male and female members of staff to raise money for Mother Teresa’s charity.
During the summer holidays, Ananya will be volunteering at the Mother Teresa Orphanage in Calcutta, India. She said: “To raise money for the charity I organised a teacher netball match. In an energetic game, the men, with an obvious height advantage, were victorious by 8 goals to 3. The event was very enjoyable for everyone involved, and I am sure the female staff will get their revenge in the future. Along with £160 proceeds from a non-uniform day we managed to raise a further £255 which will go towards food, shelter and the education of abandoned children.”
Headmistress, Miss Sue Hincks, said: “I was not much use for the women, unfortunately, but it was good fun remembering the ‘3 second rule’ and working out which was my ‘landing foot’ again after all those years. Perhaps if the women had paid as little attention to the rules as the men did..?”
