Bridge students design T-shirts for Children in Need
To raise funds for Children in Need, Bridge College students and staff got involved in a T-shirt competition. They wore yellow or spots for the day and even completed laps around the college building.
Students have been learning about Children in Need as part of Community Access and they had the opportunity to raise money by completing the lap challenge. Most students were extremely keen to participate. Hussein took control of the emails to tell everyone what was happening and then designed a collection box for the money. The students agreed that publicity was required and designed posters for the college. The day started well, students understood that they had to put a tally on the chart and once the chart was full it would be nearly 100. However, by lunchtime, less than 50 laps had been completed. In order to be Covid secure, the laps were undertaken whilst doing jobs or outside. We like to thank all the students and staff for their amazing efforts on completing an outstanding 100 laps of the college grounds. Well done everyone! We think this is a great achievement for all students and staff involved.
Many students and staff took part in the ‘design a T-shirt’ competition.
The brief was to create a bright t-shirt using the children in need logo. They could use any media they wanted to create a fun design. The winner would get their design printed on an actual t-shirt to wear! The runners up will get their design printed onto a mug and everyone can keep their designs.
Staff and students loved this idea and got work using paint, pens and pencils and adding their own wonderful ideas on to the templates.
Everyone created amazing designs and had a lot of fun getting creative. The final designs have been displayed in the hall for everyone to see. Well done to all the winners!
In total, Bridge College raised £85.12! Well done team Bridge!
This design is Thomas’. We chose his design for the winning one because he independently drew the bear and numbers onto the t-shirt which is just amazing.
This is Baylie’s design. We chose him for second place because staff have supported him to paint his fingertips onto the t-shirt, which is a lovely personal touch to the design and the smiley face makes everyone instantly smile.
This is Qasim’s design. We chose his design for third place because the colours are bright and he’s created a cool pattern.
This is Yasmine’s design. We chose hers for fourth place because her colouring in has created a lovely pattern. She had a really good idea of sticking on the children in need logo which is what we asked of her.
