Prep School Dance Raises £3,500 for Sport Relief

235 Yarm Preparatory School pupils joined Head Bill Sawyer in performing a mass dance to raise money for Sport Relief 2020.

Sport Relief is an amazing charity that harnesses the power of sport to help make a difference to the lives of vulnerable people here in the UK and around the world. They support people living with mental health issues, provide healthcare for mothers and babies, protect people at risk of trafficking or domestic violence, reduce homelessness and so much more. Charitable giving is extremely important to us as a school and Sport Relief is one of the many great causes we love to support.

For Sport Relief 2020 we took inspiration from a school in China. The school didn’t have enough room for the pupils to enjoy outdoor activities so their Head Teacher decided to lead them in a unified dance every morning. Our Prep School pupils loved this idea of coming together and doing something as a whole school, all while raising money for a great cause.

We choreographed and performed a mass dance on Friday, 13th March and raised over £3,500! Watch it here…

Bill Sawyer said: “We were inspired by a school in China whose Head Teacher leads them every morning in a unified dance and we thought ‘we can do that – let’s do it for sport relief and raise some money for a really great cause.’ Charitable giving and being passionate about good causes is really important to us as a school. It’s one of our school values and we really help the children understand the importance of giving something back and being positive change makers in society today by supporting charities.”

“We do regular events for local organisations including Teesside Hospice and Shelter and we’re very proud of the hard work of the children and the support of parents and the wider community.”
