DEN DAY SUCCESS AT REDDAM HOUSE

16 June 2017



On Friday, 16th June the pupils from the Junior and Senior schools at Reddam House supported Save the Children in their Den Day initiative, raising over £1000.

The day started with a simulation game in which the students worked in team to survive the harsh realities of life for children less fortunate than themselves. They discovered the difficult lives the young people face, how they need to work together to gain sufficient food and how exposed they are to adult dangers.

The students then collected cardboard boxes and headed into the 125 acre wood on site to work in teams to build dens using natural materials and cardboard. Each were given criteria by which their Den would be judged, from ‘withstanding earthquakes’ to ‘monsoon downpours’, all of which were supplied by their fellow students with buckets and a gentle push in the critical judging phase!

It would be a slight understatement to say that the students loved it and the vast sum they raised for the charity showed also how much they understood the difficulties faced by others, and their commitment to ‘Give back’.
