On 21 April many Patterson students and staff got involved in a world record attempt; a virtual tea party to raise funds for Guide Dogs, the Patterson House Charity. Students had to post a picture of themselves drinking tea on the Guide Dog Facebook page between 3 and 4pm.Guide Dogs announced yesterday that they had achieved the World Record for the Biggest Virtual Tea Party. The event raised £43,433 with our students pledging a total of
£97.What an amazing, positive achievement. Patterson Staff getting involved with the tea party Patterson are aiming to get students involved in various challenges during the lockdown period including Patterson Pets, which was run last week, and a special challenge on the Bank Holiday Friday which Mr Brooker launched.
In addition students can get involved in Walk this May (being run by all the Houses). Students have to send pictures of their step count either daily or after each walk. All the Houses are collating these steps and seeing
which House can walk the furthest.
Students can continue to get involved in the House Readathon competition as well. One of our Year 8 students, Harry Wakefield, has already raised £100 on his. Information about the different events is being shared on SMHW and via Patterson House Instagram page, @stbartspatterson.
