Students and teachers in charity game

Students and teachers went up against each other in an exciting game of volleyball during Friday lunchtime at Pool Academy.

It was a charitable game to see which team would come top in the match organised by PE teacher Julian Hosking for Comic Relief.

The two teams met in the sports hall after making a donation of 50p per person to take part. Many other students made a donation to come and watch the action.

Mr Hosking said: “It was a mass participation event. It was great to see so many students taking part. We had people representing all year groups from Year 7 right through to Year 11.

“Also taking part were some of our Year 10 Handball team who won Gold at the latest County School’s Finals. They were very good when they played against the teachers on Red Nose day as well.”

Other activities at Pool Academy during the day saw students wearing an item of red for a donation and others selling copies of a self-penned joke book.

Matthew Brown, teacher, said: “My form members were writing a joke book that we sold during break times for 50p each. 

“There were some real crackers in there.”
