Teachers' don't teach, they Just Dance...
Mr Beniston, a Swanshurst Librarian, organised a charity event to remind people about Intrenal Womens' Day. They money was given to two charities called 'Rape Crisis' and 'Roshni Birmingham'. For the charity raising event, Mr Beniston gathered some teachers to play Just Dance 3, on the Nintendo Wii. The event took place on Wednesday 7th March 2012, at lunchtime. The money was raised by students paying before coming in to see the students to see the teachers dance. I interveiwed the organiser Mr Beniston.
'I think that International Womens' Day is a really important day that should be remembered, that is why I held this charity event. The two charities that the money is being raised for are Rape Crisis and Roshni. The event was for teachers to dance to a Just Dance 3 song which was layed on the Wii. It was a really big hit for students, I think everybody had a really good time. Altogether we raised £325 which is really good.'
As it was a really big hit to students I interveiwed Year 8 student Leila, who told me her point of veiw of the charity fund-raising event.
'I think it was really entertaining. It was a good way to raise a charity fnd, as most of the students like to watch teahers doing funny things. I think that if there were more charity events were ike this students would get more involved, as they are really engaging. I think the most entertaining dance was by Mr Tulloch.'
So, should more events be like this??? Well, Swanshurst says..... YES!!!
