Tape The Principal

8th Apr 2017
Tape The Principal

Our 'Tape The Principal' fund raiser was a great success on our last day of the Spring term. Lots of excitement had been generated during the previous days as pupils wondered whether they would let Mr Guthrie off the wall or not!

On the day, a 'HUGE' amount of tape was 'bought' by pupils, staff and parents and it took almost 1 1/2 hours before we finally had managed to finish the tape.

Chants of 'pull out the chairs' must have echoed all around the local community, as Mr Gregson & Mr Campbell 'moved in' to remove the chairs Mr Guthrie was standing on. Once away, pupils were again very vocal as they counted down to zero. After leaving him hanging for a minute, Mr Guthrie was glad that staff and Friends of Bready members decided to cut him down.

It was a very successful event which raised, after paying for the considerable amount of tape required, £306 profit. This money will be used to purchase more outdoor learning and play equipment for pupils throughout the school.

A huge WELL DONE to everyone involved! Who will be the next 'victim?'......
