'Soak a Teacher' challenge makes a great splash

Students at St George's College, Weybridge have this week carried out the rare opportunity of hurling wet sponges at teaching staff for the 'Soak a Teacher' challenge.

In efforts to raise money for the charity CAFOD, students lined up and gave donations so that they could throw soft water filled sponges at their favourite teachers. Some teachers  donned ponchos whilst others went without. All, however, were left soaking wet.

The challenge, along with a bake sale, was set up to raise money for CAFOD so that the charity can create fish farms in Zambia, where over 6 million people are living below the poverty line. These fish farms give the Zambian people a source of income other than farming.

The students were very generous with their donations and certainly enjoyed seeing the reaction of their teachers.
