Friday, 4th February was a non-uniform day at John Kyrle High
School, although judging by the group of pupils who lined
up to have their photograph taken, it looks more like most

nurses and cowgirls to cheerleaders, St. Trinian's girls and
nuns. The pupils paid £1.50 each to go to school without
their usual school uniform. This was £0.50 more than
other 'non-uniform' days as they were raising money for two
good causes - the Asian tsunami appeal and the school's ongoing
Kisiki College project in Uganda.
of year seven students also collected £45.00 by going
round the classrooms with a bucket. The final total raised
is yet to be advised but will be published next week.
