This year, Red Nose Day is on Friday 24th March and its purpose is to raise money to help less fortunate people in the UK and across Africa.
It is all about ‘making your laugh matter’ and we would like to support this popular fundraising event in school by doing just that.
Children are invited to enter our ‘Comedy Club’ joke competition. For 50p they can submit their funniest joke, along with their name and class, on a piece of paper to Mrs Aitken by Wednesday 22nd March. Our judges, Mrs Aitken, Mrs Boyce, Mr Joyeux and Sarah will shortlist St Mary’s Cockerton top ten list of jokes. During Friday’s Gold Book, the winning joke writers will share their joke with the whole school at our Red Nose Day Comedy Club! The children who sent in the winning jokes shall be awarded with a special prize but all of the entries will be displayed on the school website for everyone to enjoy. We must insist on only one entry per child, please.
