Forest School celebrated its annual charity afternoon on Thursday 8 July. Taking place on the school field, more than 1,000 pupils set up stalls, raffles and fun activities to raise money for the school’s chosen charities. A highlight of the sunny afternoon included ‘splat the teacher’ which, unsurprisingly proved very popular with Forest pupils. Other activities included a doughnut challenge, treasure hunt and face and nail painting. The money raised will go to Girls’ School’s charities Breast Cancer Awareness, Chigwell Riding Trust, Water Aid, Plan International and the Pattaya Orphanage in Thailand. The Boys’ School’s charity is Haven House Children’s Hospice. The charity afternoon also coincided with the school’s non-uniform day.
