School pupils got to take revenge on their staff and governors by giving them a gunging in aid of Children in Need.

Oakley CofE School raised £449.65 through a range of activities, including a pyjama and onesie mufti day, a basketball challenge, a cake and plant sale and covering a giant Pudsey Bear with coins.

Money was also raised through a table top sale at the school’s recent open afternoon.

Mrs Durrant, the main event organiser, said: “Everyone enjoyed the day and we’re so proud of fantastic total raised.

“Special thanks must go to the teachers, governors and head of Blenheim House, Harry, for being such good sports.”

Pupils from Oakley also marked another special annual occasion, Remembrance Day, with an event of their own. Students made a wreath which was laid at the Oakley war memorial.
