Avon Valley School is expecting to be donating £1,000 to Comic Relief after raising money with a non-uniform day on Friday (March 24).

Each year, The Avon Valley staff and students wear whatever they want by donating £1 to Red Nose Day.

Two Year 7 students, Bella Outram and Jessica Young, who are members of the school journalism club, interviewed head teacher Alison Davies to ask her about Comic Relief.

The first question was: are you proud to lead a school that has raised so much money for Comic Relief?

“I am always proud of our students and am delighted that they do so many fantastic things for good causes,” Ms Davies responded.

“I am particularly impressed by their ability to think of other people’s needs, and the way they work together to have a positive impact on society.”

Secondly: do you think that it is important to involve children in Comic Relief?

“I think it is really important to engage people in charity events when they are young,” the head teacher said.

“It helps to develop a feeling of social responsibility and an awareness of the need to be responsible citizens.”
