Please drop your money off in the collection box at the general office, in an envelope marked with your name and form on it, before Tuesday 3pm.
Teacher vs Student Karaoke
As a new event this year, in the Courtyard during Tuesday lunch, teachers and students from Wilberforce will be going head-to-head in a karaoke battle, with different rounds featuring various individuals and our very own Mr. Loggie! Winners will be decided through a voting system through a story on our Instagram, @wilberforce_is.
Wilberforce students can, utilizing the form on their tutor group Google Classrooms, pledge an amount of money to see a certain member of staff perform a song, or nominate someone in their class to sing!
Wilberforce Carnival and Duck Plushie Sale
Carrying on from last year, on Wednesday lunch, we’ll be hosting our Wilberforce Carnival, where you can purchase tokens to play games at our game stalls, and win exciting prizes!
At this time as well, we’ll also be selling our iconic duck plushies. Do note that these plushies are in limited stock, so once they’re sold out, they’re sold out. Don’t forget to get yours on the day!
To end off our week of excitement, Wilberforce will also be running a bake sale on Friday, featuring treats such as but not limited to cake pops, brownies, rice krispie treats, cookies, and more. To purchase them, students must purchase tokens they can then trade for our baked goods, handmade with love.
We hope you look forward to our Charity Week with as much enthusiasm as our Wilberforce House. If you have any questions, feel free to email our house leaders:
