Harrogate High School had a jam-packed Comic Relief day fundraising for the cause with a wide array of events throughout the day.
Sixth Form students donated to dress up in 80’s gear for the day in honour of this been the 25th anniversary for Red Nose Day. The main school wore something red or something funny for money.
In the year 7 and 8 PE lesson they ran one mile race around the school. Principal, Mr Bayston challenged the students to beat him, however many crossed the line before him would be the amount of pounds he would personally donate. 37 beat him so that’s £37 extra!

Very much in spirit of the motto ‘doing something funny for money’ some Sixth Form boys waxed their legs on the stage at break time and also a round of sponge the teacher was played with Mr Wilson, Mr Butterworth, Mr Mowat and Miss Renou the victims.
The school’s weekly ‘The Friday Jam Session’, a scheme where a student or group perform songs of their choice at lunchtime also got in on the action as students could make a donation to request a specific song.
In the last two hours of school Sixth Form students got buckets and sponges out to do a car wash for staff and Sixth Form drivers.
Finally, students stayed after school to take-part in an array of staff vs. student’s sports including football, netball and dodge ball raising money for the worthy cause.
Head of Sixth Form, Rickie Wilson said:
I would like to say a special thank you to Lucy Thackwray, Tom Benson and Charlotte Haines who have organised the events.
School Principal Andrew Bayston said:
It’s great to see the whole school come together to raise money for such a worthy cause. To see these events been organised by Sixth Form students as well is testament to the young people we have here at this school.
