Our Children in Need Fund raising efforts have realised an amazing total of £1557 over two days!
Yesterday, we had a staff bake off competition at lunch time (the winning cake was a raspberry and almond bakewell cake), followed in the evening by Inverness Royal Academy’s own version of “Strictly” – see report below.
Today, we had a dress down day, with a different theme for each year group – pyjamas, animals, beachwear, superheroes, film characters and sportswear. The staff theme was “Dress as a Pupil”, and a few old school blazers made an appearance for the day.
At morning interval, four brave teachers were gunged; staff and pupils paid to nominate a teacher from a list of volunteers, and those who gained the most money in votes went to the top of the list. This event attracted a large crowd, and there are no doubt numerous images already on social media.
The final event of the day was a sing off in the theatre at lunchtime; entry to this event was by donation, and, in front of a packed house, groups of teachers from different departments performed some well-known, and some less well-known songs. The winners were the PE department, for their renditition of “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
We would like to thank all pupils and parents who contributed to the success of these events – well done everyone!
