Staff and pupils got into the spirit of Children in Need with a range of activities to raise money for charity -  and even an appearance on TV.

Staff and parents who undertook the Snowdonia Challenge went along to The Palm House in Sefton Park with some Lower School pupils on Friday night and joined in the North West celebrations on the BBC 1 programme.

Headmistress Mrs Clark was interviewed live on TV about the school’s fantastic fundraising efforts which have so far raised over £3,300, and the children were very excited to meet CBBC presenter Ben Shires, as well as Olympic Tai Kwando bronze medallist Bianca Walkden.

Earlier in the day staff and pupils at the Senior School swapped dress codes for the day and held a chocolate raffle, while our Lower School children raised hundreds of pounds with a spotty dress up day and cake sale. The Snowdonia Challenge team raised £2,000 from a bike, climb and kayak challenge back in September.

Headmistress Sarah Clark said: “I am so proud of the pupils and wider school community for their fundraising effort. Being part of a community is very important to us at Queen’s and I would like to thank our parents and pupils for their fantastic effort and support once again.”
