Imagination ran riot late last year when senior prefects at a Harpenden secondary school set about raising money for three charities.
And the result of Senior Prefects Week of Fun (SPWOF) at St George’s School in Sun Lane resulted in £4,746 being raised for three charities.
The annual event sees senior prefects organise a week of fun events to raise money for charity with each of the school houses holding a different event at lunchtime for students to come and watch.
Among the highlights was Goodard House with its Academy Awards of Teaching entitled the TOSCARS and Watts House with its themed musical extravaganza Wattstock - a remake of the 1969 Woodstock Festival.
School captains, deputy school captains and boarding captains finished off the week with a Top of the Pops-style event in which each prefect team performed a dance from their houses’ decade, with guest appearances from many teachers including headmaster Raymond McGovern

The money was raised in aid of Rennie Grove Hospice Care, Make a Wish Foundation and Unicef.
