Festive competition raises money for charity at KES

Stratford Editorial 23rd Dec, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

PUPILS at KES went head to head for charity.

The school’s annual  KEStival saw the four school houses – Dyson, Fitzmaurice, Spender and Warneford – against one another in an attempt to earn further points towards the annual House Competition.

Together they raised over £3,000 for the school’s two chosen charities Warwickshire Air Ambulance and Water Aid.

Events included bubble-wrap sumo wrestling, clash of the gladiators, photo booth, Storage Wars, fancy dress competition, tug o’ war, Gaffa Tape Challenge, and festive hairdressing and legwax.

Headmaster Bennet Carr said: “This pre-Christmas event has proven to be great way to raise funds for charity whilst having a huge amount of fun at the same time.”
