The school has raised £690 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, which aims to transform the health and wellbeing of children and young people, giving them the best chance to fulfil their potential.
Dunottar students were a cut above the rest when they wore their own clothes and competed with each other’s ‘headonistic’ bad hair. Dunottar Parent Teacher Association assisted by organising a cake sale at break time to raise extra cash. In a fringe benefit, some students bought children’s toys as gifts instead of donating money.
LucyAnne Chessell, who spearheads fundraising at the Reigate-based school, commented: “In a recent meeting, our charity committee, which has members from all the year groups, voted overwhelmingly for Great Ormond Street Hospital as their chosen charity this term. A few students at Dunottar have benefitted from the excellent care that Great Ormond Street has been able to offer.
“Monday will be back to standard school uniform and hair,” the maths teacher added. “It’ll be a case of hair today, gone tomorrow.”
