Disney Day for Amanda
Friday 13th June 2014
STUDENTS and staff at Invicta Grammar School held a Disney Day to raise funds for the Royal Marsden Hospital.
Former students Amanda Slann, who died from leukaemia two years ago, aged just 17, was treated at the hospital, which the school has continued to support.
The school was full of Minnie Mice, Dalmatians, pirates and assorted Disney characters as members of the sixth form collected £1 from each student in fancy dress.
There was a Disney-themed cake sale, with many students and parents baking cakes that were sold at break.
A balloon race was launched at lunchtime, with everyone gathering at the new Izatt building for the big release.The school’s details have been recorded on each balloon’s tag and the person whose balloon goes the furthest will win a prize.
The day was organised by the senior prefect team and raised £737.
