School makes it snow for its students



A school has brought its own Christmas cheer for the students in a very festive way.

Reigate Grammar School created its very own snow day by importing industrial snow machines into the playground of the Reigate Road school for the last break time of the year.

Students enjoyed hot chocolate and donuts as they scampered after the snowflakes pumped into the air before a final assembly featuring a Latin translation of Disney’s “Let it go” from Frozen sung by first form girls.

Shaun Fenton, Headmaster said:

‘We were all slightly gutted to be the only corner of the country to miss out on snow days so we made some! And, then we rounded off the snowy celebrations with what we believe was the world premiere performance of Let it Go in Latin. What a fun way to close out a wonderful term.’

In a tweet the headmaster also showed just how much fun the students were able to have.

Elf Day at Crawley College helps raise money for Alzheimer’s society



Staff and students at Crawley College Group joined other colleges across their group including Chichester, Brinsbury, Haywards Heath and Worthing Colleges – as they dressed as elves earlier this month in support of Elf Day, a festive themed fundraising event for Alzheimer’s Society.

The days helped to raise nearly £1,500 for the group’s charity of the year.

Lisa Humphries, Director of Student Services and Pastoral Support for the Chichester College Group, said:

“Everyone out-elved themselves in support of Alzheimer’s Support.

“We were overwhelmed by the support everyone gave us, raising an incredible amount to kick-off our fundraising efforts for our chosen charity of the year.

“The elves really were out in force on all campuses, from making treats to sell to walking many memory miles and attending virtual workshops to find out more about dementia.

“The support our students and staff gave us was phenomenal, especially our student experience team who organised events at all of our colleges.”

The Chichester College Group will be fundraising for Alzheimer’s Society throughout the remainder of the academic year, with more events planned over the coming months/
