Music video raises money for international community


    Claremont Senior School organised a 24-hour extravaganza of activities to raise awareness and funds for Pestalozzi, a local charity that provides scholarships to help produce ‘globally conscious young leaders’.

    Students and staff started with a cross country run around Bodiam Castle, then took part in one-hour slots for sports such as water polo, basketball, indoor football, netball, benchball and pilates.

    It ended with a dawn walk around the castle.

    They also made a music video, hosted a movie night and staged a ‘Black Box Talent Show’ featuring headmaster Giles Perrin rapping. Pupils also demonstrated their music, drama and football skills.

    This year the school has raised £4,600 for the international community at Pestalozzi.
