The fundraiser challenges were a great opportunity to get to know some children that we will be at the Becket with next year and helped us to recognise more people on the transition days. All the activities were such clever ideas and all related to Bunkpurugu. It was really great that all the schools were working together and helping raise money for the same cause – and it was lots of fun! We had to think about teamwork and it helped us to make some new friends and meet some of the lovely teachers. It made us really excited to start at the Becket next year!

After the well-planned Multi-Academy Trust Mass had taken place, we all took part in a fundraiser for Bunkpurugu, which we had all collected donations for. We did the activities, which were extremely enjoyable to do, and made the most of them, knowing that we were helping people who are not as fortunate as us. We did activities like the pencil relay, the water challenge, the hoop challenge, and many more. We worked with other children from other schools, and built new friendships with one another. Also, there were amazing sixth-formers that also helped us with the activities. Raising lots of money, we eventually achieved having fun, but also knowing we had helped build a school in Bunkpurugu.
