Students from across Sydenham High Junior School have taken part in a second Practice-a-thon event, beating last year’s fundraising total to raise £882.57 in support of children and young people with cancer, and their families.
Pupils committed themselves to practicing at home, rehearsing at breaks and lunchtimes and playing, singing and dancing as much as possible. They were then able to share their music with their friends. Some girls went a step further and put on concerts at home to raise more money.
In all they raised the amazing sum of £882.57 – nearly £200 more than last year.
Head of Junior School Music, Biann Duval said: “It has been wonderful to see the girls inspired to practice their instruments and raise money for this special cause.
“It also paid off in their music exam results as the girls went on to get excellent grades.”
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Elizabeth Charing said: ”A huge well done to all the pupils for taking part in Practice-a-thon. Not only have they raised vital funds for children and young people with cancer, and their families, they’ve also achieved fantastic grades in their music exams!"
