Essex school pupils enjoy ‘a day at sea’ for the RNLI
PUPILS at Friends’ Junior School joined in enthusiastically with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution SOS day to raise �272 for the charity.
‘The Sea’ was the theme for the day and costumes ranged from an interesting assortment of pirates, to oil rig workers, fishermen and a collection of crustaceans.
Lessons were based around the ocean for the day and a sea-themed cake stall run by the pupils in year five helped add to the amount raised.
The day finished with the singing of sea-shanties and a rendition of the theme from ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ by the school band. A
lan Fish and Paul Rush, representatives of the RNLI, joined in the singing and also spoke to the children about safety while swimming at the beach and how fundraising helps the RNLI continue to save lives at sea.
