Dewar House were out in force on Thursday for the final House Charity Day of the year, ready to raise as much money as possible for a fantastic local cause, the Thames Valley Adventure Playground.

On Wednesday night pupils and parents must have been extremely busy as there was a fantastic array of baked goods at the bake sale on Thursday break time, with many of them decorated in Dewar blue!

Pupils were as eager as ever to spend their pocket money for a good cause and a delicious treat.

With such a huge variety, the games at lunchtime were just as popular as the bake sale. It was a very well organised event with pupils buying tickets as they arrived at the Astroturf and then ‘paid’ with their tickets to have a go at each game.

“The Dewar children were magnificent. I had so many of them asking whether they could run a stall or organise an activity. In the end I was simply saying “Yes” and trusting them to do a great job, which they did! Their hard work has raised a fantastic £1,146.63 for TVAP”Head of Dewar

Dewar’s pupils had obviously worked hard making signs and thinking up some fantastic ideas which were very popular across all the year groups. The games included soak a Year 8, throw the longest rugby pass, tennis ball target, lucky dip, guess the name of the song, cup pong, loom bands and beat the keeper!

The Heads of House were on hand to help organise and the Upper School boys were even willing be super soaked on a regular basis to raise as much money as possible for this important cause.

“It was so good to see all the year groups come together to raise money for Thames Valley Adventure Playground. There was a delicious cake sale, and various stalls including shooting water at year 8s, basketball, and many more.”Heads of House

Dewar pupils definitely embraced the challenge of organising such a large fundraising event and created a wonderfully fun and engaging day.
