TIBHS gets active for Sport Relief
Penalty shoot-outs, sponsored walks and cake sales were among the fundraising
activities when Tauheedul Islam Boys’ High School set about raising money for Sport
Relief this week.
The Blackburn secondary school’s pupil council organised a variety of activities taking
place every day in the run-up to Sport Relief on Friday 23 March.
The student council, made up of boys from all year groups, organised and ran a
lunchtime cake sale, while Year 7 and Year 8 pupils took part in a sponsored walk
through Sunnyhurst Woods in Darwen.
Staff took up position in goal each lunchtime as pupils made donations to take part in
A team of TIBHS staff took on a team from Star Academies in a five-a-side
match which ended in triumph for the TIBHS side. Spectators from the school and
the Trust made donations to watch the spectacle.
TIBHS’ week of Sport Relief fundraising will culminate in a non-uniform day on the
last day of term, Friday 23 March.
TIBHS’ Principal Majid Ditta said:
“Our pupils really embraced the opportunity to raise funds for a national appeal that
supports young people both in the UK and overseas. The student council took a lead
in organising the activities and charity collections – and did a wonderful job! The
week has given our pupils another opportunity to demonstrate our STAR values of
service and teamwork particularly as they worked together to raise funds for a very
worthy charity – having lots of fun in the process.”
“Our young men seized the chance to aim footballs at their teachers over lunchtimes,
support our cake sale and give the TIBHS staff team plenty of support when we took
on the team from the Trust.”
TIBHS are still counting donations and sponsorship money and will announce their
Sport Relief fundraising total on their Twitter profile @tauheedulboys.
