Red Nose Day: Windhill21 Primary School head collects £650 for Comic Relief on cash dash around the classrooms
The kindness of children at a Bishop's Stortford primary school was celebrated for Comic Relief.
Windhill21 head Philippa Moore took part in a cash dash around the classrooms and collected more than £650 for the charity on Red Nose Day on Friday (March 19).
Earlier in the week, the school held a special assembly to understand the impact of their fundraising, and the story of a young Syrian immigrant resonated with the pupils.
On the big day, all classes logged into Zoom at 2pm ready for the start of Mrs Moore's quest to collect money from each class against the clock.
Teachers had nominated a child in each class who had shown a caring attitude. Deputy head Sarah Wood read the details of each pupil's efforts as Mrs Moore raced around the school delivering a Red Nose sticker to each child whilst collecting money in a bucket.
"As I was charging round, the bucket was getting heavier and heavier and I was tiring," she said. "Encouragingly, the children were chanting and willing me on. Once I'd finished, the heavy bucket had a satisfying weight to it."
