Over the summer holidays, at the peak of the ‘Ice-Bucket Challenge’ phenomenon, Year 11 , Poppy Poole emailed Mr McDonough and nominated him to be the next in line to have a bucket of iced water poured over his head. No doubt she then forgot about it. However on Thursday lunchtime the Head responded to Poppy’s emails and in front of a packed quad, full of Year 10 and 11 students, got soaked with THREE buckets of water. To view a video clip of Mr McDonough being soaked HERE. Mr McDonough challenged Mr Smiter, Mr Normington, Mr Nightingale, Mrs Goad and Mrs Lynch who were all also soaked by Poppy’s friends and volunteers from the audience.
It was truly a great atmosphere and great event with whoops of support from the audience. More importantly an additional £XXXXXXXX was raised for this good cause.
