Sixth Form students had a fantastic day as they all got behind the Interact Club’s fundraising activities. The group’s original request for a bog-standard Non-Uniform Day was rejected – we expect more imagination than that – and the Interact team responded big style.

The Halloween themed fancy dress was a huge hit with students as they assumed a range of guises from the very spooky to the really quite hilarious.

Best dressed went to Maisie Alford for her very creative Pierrot Clown but all of the students made a fantastic effort which brought a really fun feel to the day.

The Interact Club went to town decorating the Sixth Form Centre and laid on a cake and sweet sale, pin the spine on the skeleton and trick or treat spin the wheel for lower school.

All in all, the various events raised just under £300 for the Interact Club’s charities; Pathways Project and Over the Wall.

Helen Barratt, Assistant Headteacher, said: ‘I am so proud of the students. The Interact Club have worked so hard to bring this day together and it has been a complete success. Seeing the effort that all the students went to to dress-up and support the fundraising was a joy to behold. It’s day’s like this that The Friary’s all about – a serious context but a lot of fun along there way – and this was a great way to end what’s been a long half-term.’
