On Thursday 3rd March 2016, the school will be taking part in World Book Day. Students are being asked to come into school dressed up as their favourite book character; whether it be from Harry Potter to The Maze Runner! Pupils should bring in a £1 to help raise money for the charity, Readathon.
Sport Relief is when the great British public get active and have fun to help change lives. It's back in March 2016, so get involved and make a difference.
King Edward VI High School will be taking part in this event this year. We will be doing a 6 hour "bounceathon" at school - pupils will be given the opportunity to pay £1 to come along and bounce for charity. Details to follow.
If pupils do not want to bounce then there is an opportunity to do The Great KEVI Sport Relief Bake Off with the winning cake/cakes to get a prize.
More information to follow soon...
