IDEA 1

Dress up (or down)

Join in the fun on Friday 15 March and encourage everyone to pay a small fee to go non-uniform or dress up for the day. Come to school in PJs, as your favourite superhero or just in all red everything.

IDEA 2

Bake a difference

Bake a batch of home-made treats or pop to the shops for a ready-made cake (we won’t tell…), then set up shop to bring in some dough. Even if you’re more Betty Crocker than Mary Berry, our simple recipes are easy enough for anyone to make.

IDEA 3

Go head to head

Tug of war or dance-off, football match or big debate, spark a little friendly (or fierce) competition between teachers and students. Charge teams an entry fee, sell tickets to spectators and set up a snack bar on the side.

Money-raising moves

Who doesn’t love a classic school disco? Get the lower school on board to put together a playlist and decorate the hall, then ask older students to sell tickets and set up a snack stall.
