Truro High goes bananas for Children in Need

Beloved children’s characters leapt off the screen and into the classroom today as girls of all ages donned outfits from their favourite TV shows and films in aid of BBC Children in Need.

Girls aged from 4 – 18 swapped their usual uniforms for costumes inspired by cherished children’s TV and film characters in exchange for a small donation to the charity.

Ensembles ranged from Marge Simpson and Elmer the Elephant to the entire ‘Scooby Gang’ complete with terrifying mummy and a box of ‘Scooby Snacks’. The school’s Year 13 students even spent the day hard at work dressed as a big bunch of ‘Bananas in Pyjamas’. 

Staff also got in on the fun with highlights including The Cat in the Hat, Rainbow’s Zippy and the entire family from Pixar’s ‘The Incredibles’.

The day’s activities culminated with a hotly-contested inter-house competition to find the most inventive costumes and our judges were extremely impressed with the entries.

Our Sixth Form also hosted a mid-morning cake sale as part of the school’s fundraising efforts, which have raised many hundreds of pounds for the charity.  

BBC Children in Need works throughout the year to ensure that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood, and the chance to reach their full potential. Whether you’re baking up a storm, pulling on some fancy dress or doing a feat of daring do, every penny raised will help support projects across the UK.

In order to help support Cornish children in need, Truro High families also kindly donated a huge amount of good quality children’s clothes to a local women’s refuge.
