On Friday 26th April, 45 students from years 4, 5, 6 and 7 descended on Chepstow House at 6.30pm eager for a night fuelled with no sleep, midnight snacks and games around the school. That’s right, it was the annual sleepover in aid of the Chepstow House Philanthropic Fund. The evening commenced with a football and netball tournament, rounds of Splat and British Bulldog, before the fading light forced the party inside. A competitive game of Sardines followed, with various students picking up some prizes due to their creative hiding places, including getting wedged into a locker..! Time was moving quickly and it was soon time to start winding down. After much deliberation, the students picked a film and munched on popcorn and “midnight” snacks. Teeth brushed, pyjamas on, sleeping bags zipped up and it was lights out!
It’s safe to say there were a few tired students (and teachers) come Saturday morning! Over £2000 was raised for the Chepstow House Philanthropic Fund – thank you to all those who donated and attended. Bring on next year!
