Red Nose Day 2024

On Friday 15th March, Toftwood Infant and Junior School celebrated Red Nose Day! The children were taught across the school about the importance of Comic Relief and the charity’s vision to end poverty across the world. This year, the School Council were tasked with organising several activities to encourage people to take part and raise awareness for Comic Relief.

First, the School Council met to share ideas. There were many wonderful suggestions made by the Councillors across the federation! Once a list had been collated, our Chairperson Szymon and our Secretary Abigail presented the ideas to Mrs Pedlow. When the Red Nose-themed activities were decided upon, the School Council got to work in order to make these happen!

The children made some fantastic red noses, all with different expressions and quirks, to be used in an exciting scavenger hunt! With one based at Infants and one based at Juniors, the School Councillors helped Miss Gold and Miss Makins with organising and running the hunts. We were very proud of how hard the Councillors worked to make the day special for everyone.

Additionally, each class created a Red Nose display to go on their classroom doors. We have included photos of several class doors across the Federation, alongside some of the children in their red clothes and accessories! With some time in class to complete wordsearches, colouring and make some red-nosed masks, the children had an excellent day. Our wonderful, dedicated staff in the school kitchens even baked special red-nosed cookies!

Counted with the help of our Treasurer Lily and Councillors Millie and Alice, the Federation raised a fantastic £450.00! Thank you kindly to everyone who donated. Well done, Toftwood!
