Pink Week Charity Fundraiser

4 November 2019 | 6th Form, School News

Through the generosity of the Weatherhead school community, we have raised an incredible £2,520.52 for charity in our annual Pink Week fundraising event. Thank you to every single one of you who made a donation or supported an event. All money raised will be donated to Breast Cancer Now.

Pink Week is organised by Weatherhead’s Sixth Form students and staff as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month which aims to highlight the importance of breast awareness, education and research.

Throughout the week our Student Senior Leadership Team delivered student assemblies and held pink ribbon sales, cake sales, sold raffle tickets, ran a nail bar and a guess the number of sweets competition – for anyone who entered the correct answer was 182!

But that was only the beginning of our most successful Pink Week to date…

On Monday students were treated to a Sixth Form flash mob as our students appeared throughout the school at lunchtime to perform their High School Musical routine.

On Tuesday, the theatre was packed with students taking part in a pink ‘Just Dance’ event and Sixth Form students competed in a battle of minds in the Sixth Form quiz – the winners (pictured below) received Paula the unicorn as their prize.

On Wednesday, our Sixth Form boys demonstrated their artistic skills as they delivered make-up tutorials; in the afternoon students participated in a game of pink bingo. 195 Year 7 and 8 students returned in the evening, dressed in pink, for the pink disco!

Thursday was Pink Day and students went all out wearing pink accessories, staff dressed in pink and the Sixth Form team were replaced by the Pink Ladies!

At the Pink Day show, the highlight of Pink Week, students delivered a packed programme of gymnastics, dance routines and musical performances to rapturous applause. In the battle of the common room, Year 12 and 13 students competed to win the coveted trophy for best decorated room. Both groups excelled in their delivery of pink decour but in the end it was Year 13 who were victorious!
