Rookwood School Raises Funds and Fun for Comic Relief

Red Nose Day at Rookwood School


On Friday 15th March, Rookwood School held a day of successful fundraising efforts to mark this year’s Comic Relief. The school organised a series of engaging activities that not only brought joy and laughter but also raised vital funds and help for charitable causes.

One of the highlights of the day was non-school uniform, where pupils enthusiastically donned various red items instead in support of Comic Relief. A minimum donation of £1 was encouraged, and the sea of red clothing was a vibrant testament to the pupils’ generosity and spirit.

Adding to the excitement was the Cereal Domino Rally, a creative and collaborative initiative that involved every pupil bringing in a box of cereal to create a large domino effect. The activity not only brought smiles but also contributed to a meaningful cause. All 250 cereal boxes used in the rally will be donated to the Andover Food Bank, aiding local families in need. Watch the video below to see the Cereal Domino Rally in action.

Commenting on the day, Liz Hacker, Deputy Head at Rookwood School, who coordinated the day, said: “We are thrilled with the overwhelming response and enthusiasm shown by our pupils and staff for this year’s Comic Relief activities. It’s incredibly heart warming to see our school come together once again to make a positive difference in the lives of others, both locally and globally. Many thanks to all our parents for making this possible.”
