Each house runs a separate charity week at Roundwood Park School in Harpenden and this year Cadbury House chose to raise money for Angels Support Group.

Based in Letchworth, it supports parents and carers of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Autistic Spectrum Condition but its faces closure as its funding is due to run out later this year.

Among those in Herts it supports is a Roundwood Park student.

During the charity week, each year group in Cadbury House ran a popular cake sale on a different day. Other activities included guess the weight of the hamper, egg roulette, movie and popcorn at lunch time and a lucky dip.

On the final day students were invited to dress up in line with the theme of Kids TV and Film. Along with a Maleficent, devised by head of Cadbury House Kate Barron at the suggestion of her seven-year-old twins, there was an Eeyore, Dr Who, Minions, a Power Ranger and a Teletubby.

The winning costume, Stephanie from Lazy Town, was created from an old pillow case.
