On Friday 6th December 2013, Kingsbury High School held a quiz night to raise money for the Disasters Emergency Committee’s (DEC) Philippines Typhoon Appeal.
The quiz night, organised by KS3 Pastoral Curriculum Leader, Ms Sarah Purtill and Sixth Form students, called on the support of local businesses who donated generously.
Members of staff, students, parents and the local community were invited to enjoy the event which, along with the quiz, also included traditional dance and music performances and a raffle prize draw. The most sought after prizes were four tickets to the Saracens versus Harlequins rugby union match at Wembley Stadium, donated by Saracens; a head massage, donated by Aura Centre of Hair and Beauty and a round of golf for four people, donated by Pinner Golf Club.
The event was a huge success and the school raised an impressive £2,112.15 for the DEC Philippines Typhoon Appeal.
Ms Purtill said “It was amazing to see our community come together to help support the Philippines. It highlighted to us, as a school, how much we can achieve working together with our Kingsbury community. The atmosphere was one of community spirit and a realisation how together we can make a difference. Our Sixth Form worked tirelessly to ensure the evening was a success and it was great to see their hard work pay such dividends.”
