Hundreds of people flocked to this year’s fundraising Community Fun Day at Highfields to enjoy an action-packed programme of fun activities, live entertainment, games and challenges.
The school opened its doors to members of the public for the extravaganza, which took place on Saturday, July 15th and raised around £1,300 for the school’s chosen charity, Compton Hospice.
A bouncy castle, rodeo bull, inflatable bungee run, welly wanging and tug-of-war were among the activities on the day, as well as a ‘Sponge The Teacher’ stand. Visitors also got the chance to put their knowledge and skills to the test in a range of challenges, including an Oculus Rift Virtual Reality challenge, an arts quiz and a product taste comparison test.
Highfields students performed songs and dances for visitors during the day, whilst the crowds were also entertained with a cake competition and cupcake decorating tutorial. This year’s event was made extra special by the inclusion of the school’s Sports Day, which saw students compete in a range of disciplines to win awards for their form groups.
Headteacher, Mr G Tate, said: “We were delighted to open the doors of our school for this year’s Community Fun Day. There was so much going on throughout the day for the whole family and we all had a great time.
“I would like to thank everyone who took the time to join us for the event and especially those who donated to our chosen charity, Compton Hospice.
