Our event this term will be a Race Night. We tried it last year and those who came along massively enjoyed it. It works in a very simple way. You choose a horse from the race card and place a small bet on it. Then you watch the race up on a big screen, getting very excited as your favourite powers to victory (or not, in the case of the horse that I pick…) .
All the money from the losing bets goes to HSPA to help us buy those things for the school which are not essential but which are brilliant things to have. For example, we have just given a grant for a special display case for the school's surprisingly rich collection of valuable religious artefacts so that they can add value to Religious Studies lessons.
