Back to School DayDate Posted: 13/11/2012 | Posted In: Latest news
Students recently held their annual ‘Back to School Day,’ when students and staff put on their old school uniforms to raise money for charity.
Student Services Co-ordinator, Beccy Stannard, commented: ‘It was a fun day with everyone entering wholeheartedly into the spirit of the event – even staff dug out their old school attire! The Student Association Executive baked and sold cakes, there was a bucket collection and, to link with the theme of the day, students joined in games such as Giant Jenga, Kerplunk and Giant Limbo. A total of £326.35 was raised for Age UK in Darlington. ‘
Charity Co-ordinator, Karl Beaton, said: ‘Back to School day proved to be a success, raising a huge amount for charity. We loved seeing the students taking part and there were some great outfits! It was a very successful event that really lived up to its tradition
