Children in Need
Fundraising was in full swing at Upper Batley High School on Friday 15th November in aid of Children in Need. It all started with a group of learners collecting parking fees from staff and visitors on the drive at 7.30am. The school council also arranged various events at break and lunchtime, which included Mrs Farrar's bakesale where the boys managed to sell over 160 buns and cakes in less than 10 minutes!
The day finished with our gunge-a-teacher event. Votes and donations had been coming in all week and Mr Parkin was the unfortunate member of staff to be gunged at the end of the school day in front of huge groups of learners.
Mr Farrar who helped organise the day said "The day was a great success and we raised a fantastic £1,080 for this amazing charity, a new record for UBHS!"
