Ramsey Academy, Halstead have for the second year unanimously selected and fundraised for the Smile of Arran.

Charity week ran from Monday 25 April to Friday 29 April and proved to be a busy week, packed with a range of activities to suit all interests. As popular as ever, the cake sale offered delicious cakes baked by staff and students to start the fundraising on Monday and Tuesday breaks.

Lunch time on Tuesday saw the new phenomenon of Y-Ball at Ramsey! An action-packed game with music and a Nerf ball!

The Sports Captains organised some very competitive girls’ and boys’ teams to take part in some very hard-fought matches in the Sports Hall – supposedly a non-contact sport, but students literally threw themselves into the game!

The players were urged on by M.C ‘T-Dog Taylor Nicholson’ and his music. Students from all Houses took part or lined the walls to watch the action and donate, of course.

At the end of the week staff and pupils raised an incredible £1,735.73.
