Red Nose Day . ………………………………………………….
On Friday 13th March, students and staff joined together in an effort to raise money for Red Nose Day 2015. There were lots of fun activities throughout the day, including a beauty salon for staff run by Demi Tsavalos, Felisha Taylor, Tameka Nathan and Ruby Stuart-Turner in 5SK, raising an incredible £49.00.
We are really excited to announce that we have raised a grand total of £1048.16!, and, the best bit is the UK Government will match all money raised by UK schools to help 300,000 children in Africa into school and education.
A huge thank you to everyone who donated and did ‘something funny for money!’

Chief Cashier of the Bank of England Victoria Cleland with Rushey Green Primary School students
A group of pupils from Rushey Green Primary School took over the Bank of England to launch Young Enterprise’s Fiver Challenge, supported by Virgin Money. The pupils, aged between eight and 11, put on their best suits and went to work, inspecting the Bank’s new five pound notes and learning about banknotes from the Chief Cashier Victoria Cleland.
Supported by Virgin Money, the Fiver Challenge is a free, fun and engaging initiative that provides 5-11 year olds with a £5 pledge for one month. Pupils are challenged to set up mini businesses to create products or services they can then sell or deliver, while developing key skills such as teamwork, problem solving and creativity. Pupils can then decide what to do with any profits they make- they can choose to spend it on school or class resources, a trip, or donate it to charity.
The Challenge month will run for the month of June. Registration at www.fiverchallenge.org.uk gives access to online resources for teachers and pupils, activities, curriculum support, case studies, ideas and inspiration.
Victoria Cleland, Chief Cashier, Bank of England said: “The Fiver Challenge is a fantastic opportunity for children, from a young age, to be involved in enterprise, teamwork and also to understand the importance of money.”
Michael Mercieca, Chief Executive, Young Enterprise said: “The Fiver Challenge engages with children in the crucial years when financial behaviours are so often formed. It is a fun and motivating activity that encourages primary school-age children to start thinking about the value of money, spending and enterprise. In the practice of setting up mini-companies, the children learn the skills and business know-how that will equip them better for the future.”
Sir Richard Branson, Virgin Money said: “Virgin Money proudly sponsor the Fiver Challenge, a scheme which encourages entrepreneurship from a young age and gets children excited about business. Making financial decisions and taking responsibility for their enterprises teaches the children how to work well in a team and arms them with the ability to problem solve.”
