Having a Laugh for Comic Relief…

Two schools in Henley donned red clothes, red noses and superhero costumes to have a laugh raising money for Comic Relief this year on Friday.

From Superwoman to Spiderman, Ironman to Cinderella, children at St Mary’s School joined 60 other schools across Oxfordshire on Friday morning to take part in BBC Oxford’s Guinness World Record of Biggest Game of Musical Bumps. Craig Glenday, Editor in Chief of Guinness World Records, said: “This is a phenomenally fun record! The adjudicator, witnesses and stewards will have their work cut out monitoring the bumps amid the organised chaos in the schools. Well done to BBC Oxford for proposing the event and helping to raise the vital funds for Comic Relief.”

Year 6 pupil Doni Papageorgio, decided that his superhero was Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy (pictured above with Superman).

At Rupert House School, pupils dressed up in red and donned their red noses which this year were a wild bunch including a flamingo, dinosaur, cow and a rare colourful chameleon.   The school organised a competition to design a house for their red nose with some designs really going to town with lights and furniture.  The winners were judged by the School Councillors and were Emilia Chater, Monty Dougan, Neve van Blerk and Liza Meintjes and the runners-up were Evelyn Harris, Flossy Gibson, Emilia Milward and Matilda Groh.

THP Solicitors donned their red noses for Comic Relief whilst working from home and raised £65.
