Red Nose Day and ShelterBox 15 Mar 2013

What a great day we all had today at Constantine School! This year we decided to have a charity day bonanza combining Red Nose Day and a fundraising effort for the wonderful charity ShelterBox. All the children came into school in either green for ShelterBox, or red for Red Nose Day. We also created a coin trail throughout the school and managed to raise an impressive £140.

We were lucky to have David from ShelterBox in to talk with each class about a different disaster. He brought in an amazing range of equipment which all of the children could touch, feel and think about their uses. Throughout the presentations, the children were fascinated, asking many great questions.

Two empty Shelterboxes were available in the playground for team building and problem solving activities.

A huge thanks must go to David form Shelterbox for inspiring and teaching the children so well; David was celebrating his 100th school visit today, so Constantine are proud that he came to visit us on this occasion. Thanks also to Mr Hitchens for organising the day, and to everyone at Constantine for joining in the activities so wholeheartedly.
