House Charity Week raises over £1500 for Marie Curie.


All five House Teams at Newquay Tretherras have been busy raising funds for Marie Curie Charity during the school’s charity Week.

On the last week of Spring term, a wide range of activities took place at break and lunchtimes that included cake sales, pie face the teacher, a football tournament, guess the teacher baby photo, a car wash and even an augmented reality treasure hunt! Head of Longships House Mr Dan Ellery, raised over £100 by having his beard shaved off by students!

Other Newquay Tretherras events, the NT’s Got Talent evening and the NT Spring Concert also collected money in support of the charity. On the last day of the term, students raise the final sum of money with a ‘wear it yellow’ non-uniform day.

In total Newquay Tretherras students raised over £1500.

Newquay Tretherras teacher Ms Jane Hurley representing all the Heads of House commented, “Newquay Tretherras students have pulled together for a charity that some of our staff and students have had first and experience of their support. We are incredibly proud of the community spirit our students have shown and the awareness they raised.”
