On Friday 28th October, Laude San Pedro International College held a very special non- uniform day. The school celebrated a ‘Halloween Danceathon’ that saw students from all key stages including Early Years, Primary and Secondary, staff and even parents,dressed up in their spookiest outfits, dancing their little hearts away, raising funds and awareness for the Cudeca Hospice.
The event took place at the School’s Sports Hall and began with a stunning openingdance number by Dance GCSE students, followed by a presentation by Cudeca representative Esther Ráez Martínez and ended with everyone dancing to the all-time favourite ‘Time Warp’. BBC International Award Winning Singer Tom Solomon was amongst the crowd and came forth to the stage when prompted and wowed the crowd by singing an acapella version of ‘The Phantom of the Opera’.
The Halloween Danceathon was organised in conjunction with Talk Radio Europe who will host a Telethon in aid of the Cudeca Hospice on November 25th. In order to participate, all students, staff and parents contributed to a minimum donation of 1€. A total of 840.47€ was raised and will be added to the total money raised at the TRE Telethon, helping TRE get within closer reach to their €100.000target.
In the words of the organisers, ‘Laude San Pedro International College is extremely thankful for the magnificent support from our students, staff and parents who have made this event so successful and possible. We thrive in helping our community and we are proud to form part of such a worthy cause and appreciate the trust given to us by TREand Cudeca Hospice.’
