Students throwing water over Mr Fearnhead and Mr Darby

Mr Fearnhead and Mr Darby endured a very wet and chilly lunch break today when an onslaught of students proceeded to dowse the duo in ice-cold buckets of water.

The pair of teachers had decided it was a good way to make some extra money for the Year 8 CAFOD Lent Appeal.

Students were invited to make a donation to the appeal before arming themselves with buckets of water (which were kindly refilled by Mr Fallon) and sponges in order to soak the two teachers as much as they could.

Mr Fearnhead, a keen watersport enthusiast, seemed to enjoy the experience. ‘The water wasn’t as cold as when I go wake boarding.’

Mr Darby added ‘It was freezing! At least I didn’t cheat and wear a wetsuit like Mr Fearnhead.’

Over £20 was raised for the appeal.
