Gordano Sixth Form students raised £4,500 for charity when students dressed up for RAG Week in October 2017.
RAG Week is a traditional part of Gordano Sixth Form culture. Organised by a student committee, the aim of the event is to raise as much money as possible for charity, by involving as many people around school as possible.
This year, the money raised will be going to Bristol based charity, Mend the Gap and the national mental health awareness charity, Mind.
A major part of RAG consists of Sixth Formers flaunting a fantastic array of fancy dress and costume design during the week. Pre-decided themes for each day of the charity event encourage the entire sixth form student body to join in, including the teaching staff.
James Ellis and Charlotte Yeaman, RAG Chairs, commented,
“We’ve worked really hard this term to make sure everything is set for RAG week. The dedication of the RAG Committee has helped us a lot. This year should be great for Sixth Form in terms of the money raised as we have managed to get the whole school in non-uniform on Friday, which has never happened before. Hopefully it will be a great success.”
