Staff get a soaking as part of Water Aid Day
10th October 2016

Teachers at Rydal Penrhos got a soaking as part of a special fundraising day in aid of a global charity.

The school held Water Aid Day on Friday, October 7, with a host of activities taking place throughout the event.

Pupils’ dressed up in themes beginning with H and O, or came in their own clothes for a small donation.

There were a pair of cake sales during break and lunch in the Memorial Quad, with a host of tasty treats on offer.

The highlight of the event – at least for pupils – was wet sponge throwing at teachers, which drew a large crowd wanting to see the staff members get a drenching.

All proceeds went towards Water Aid, a charity that work with local partners to deliver clean water and toilets and promote good hygiene, and campaign to make change happen for everyone everywhere.

Acting head Roger McDuff, said: “This was a fabulous fundraising day and congratulations go to all pupils and staff for their efforts.

“It was a great spectacle seeing our staff get a soaking in aid of charity, and the enthusiasm shown by everyone at the school throughout the day for a very worthy cause was extremely pleasing.”
