Splash the teacher!
Fun event in Honiton supports Sport Relief
PUPILS and staff at Honiton Primary School are racing ahead in their efforts to support this year’s Sport Relief fund-raiser.
As well as entering a team in the Sport Relief Mile, organised by Honiton Running Club, the school has enjoyed ‘lunchtime laughter’ and now a ‘splash the teacher’ event.
All this March madness has been conjured up to raise cash for worthy causes - and raise a smile.
Teachers got a soaking at the school today (Thursday).
