What a packed week it has been at Etone College. Not only have we had visits from our House Charities, a very successful Careers Fair but as a school we have also been busy fundraising and supporting Comic Relief.
Over the course of the week our Houses have hosted the annual Rowing Competition, which has been a welcome return post pandemic. Not only have we raised additional funds for our Charity Totaliser but also added hundreds of House Points to our House totals for the year.
We have also been laughing our socks off with the entries to our Joke Competition. Pupils were tasked to come up with a joke, make a small donation and enter with the chance to win a voucher. We will be announcing the winner shortly.
On the day itself our staff joined in with the Comic Relief Cupcake Sweepstake. Each picking their favourite cupcake for the chance to win a voucher. Although completely within the rules, Mr Smith attempted to stack the odds in his favour with two picks. However, the winning cupcake was Double Choc Delight meaning that Mr Astall is the one with the luck of the Irish this time.
Finally on Friday afternoon we held our staff vs students football match to raise funds and settle scores away from the classroom. In a four way title race it was tough however the final scores were:
- 1st – Palmercacio – Sixth Formers
- 2nd – Leech United – Sixth Formers
- 3rd – Priceton North End – Staff
- 4th – Khanton Athletic – Staff
Meaning that the Sixth Form students have dominated the league and take the title home for another year.
Overall we have raised £431.35 for Comic Relief and add this to our Totaliser making a midyear total of £2116.54. Once again thank you for all of your support. We can’t wait for the next big event: https://www.etonecollege.co.uk/charity-counter/
