How on earth did this happen?

The whole school revolted last Friday and paid money to see their teachers get soaking wet.

As part of our ‘Day of Mercy’ BRW staff put themselves forward to be locked in the stocks and sponged by their pupils.

There was a great atmosphere in the Jubilee Garden and I have to commend the teachers for being so brave.  It was not easy to be locked up in those terrible stocks, believe me.

I got well and truly soaked and just had to put my hood up due to the terribly cold weather conditions.  It was well worth it and the money raised will go to Water Aid, an important charity that helps people receive clean water supplies.DSC08345

We ensured that all water was re-used on the day and our veggie patch and garden got a good soak through.


  1. I enjoyed taking part in the “Day of Mercy” It was good to link up to the other schools. My favourite part of the day was throwing sponges at the teachers, my sponge hit Mrs Maylord-Mason in the face!
    Fantastic way to raise money for the charity Water Aid.

  2. It was really fun on my first time I got it right on Miss Sparkes,s coat with the spong it was still theses thing but it wasuned in thesem please.

  3. Even though it was really funny sponging the teachers in their faces ( it was really, really funny! Hee, Hee!) e should also look at how much money we raised. So really, we should thank the teachers for letting them get sponged in their faces! They agreed to this and we did make it count!
