THE end to the first half term at the Javea International College (XIC) Secondary school was celebrated in style with a number of activities, combining Halloween and Wear it Pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Day.
Students and teachers paid €1 to come to school in fancy dress which, along with a cake sale, helped raise €270 for local cancer charities. The school organised a competition for the best costume on the day. For the last hour of the day there were a number of challenges, enabling students to score points for their schoolhouse, which included the traditional apple bobbing and beat the goalie games, but by far the most popular activity was of course, sponge the teacher!
Head teacher, Fiona Phillips thanked the senior students for organising the activities and teachers for taking part and for raising money and awareness for such a worthy and important cause. The school supports a number of good causes including the EMAUS and Make a Smile organisations.
