Dear Parents, Carers and Students
RAG Week: Monday 7th February – Friday 11th February 2022
RAG Week has been a highlight of the Sixth Form calendar for a number of years, following the pandemic disruption we are aware some students have not had the full experience of a RAG Week and we’re so excited to let you know the time has come again. During this week students and teachers will be taking part in events and dressing up to raise money for charity.
The charities we will be supporting this year are:
The Albert Kennedy Trust- A national charity supporting youth homelessness. They work to provide emergency accommodation and support with assigned caseworkers allowing teenagers to get formal types of photo identification so they can apply for jobs and university.
The Northamptonshire Association for the Blind- provide support locally to many visually impaired children and adults providing family support, leisure sessions and inclusive activities with expert advice and representation available.
The Little Princess Trust – provides real hair wigs for children and young people who have lost their hair due to cancer. Not only this they fund research projects focused on finding kinder and more effective treatments for childhood cancers.
RAG Week is being arranged by the Sixth Form students so please make sure you show your support and come to as many events as possible, they will be held in the Main Hall. Watching activities such as Lip Sync Battles and Strictly Come Dancing always provides an entertaining lunchtime with your teachers participating every step of the way. Posters will be put up across the school giving details about events and when you can come, watch or indeed participate.
Each event will be a 50p minimum donation, which will of course be going directly to our charity choices.
On Friday 11th of February, you are welcome to wear Mufti with a £1 donation. On the Friday people will come round Form Rooms to collect your donations.
We hope you can help us all to raise money, thoroughly enjoy the events and contribute as much as you possibly can.
