RAG Week at Invicta

Day 1 – Safari and House Dance Competition - Monday, 7 December 2015

This year’s RAG Week arrived with a bang, as Invicta was transformed into its very own Safari, with the Sixth Form and Year 7 students dressed as lions, elephants and even a safari truck! The first day was very eventful, with a heated dance battle between the Houses at lunchtime and a fantastic Dance Show in the evening. During the House Dance Battle, students from all years worked together to choreograph some spectacular dances and performed their hearts out on stage, including an appearance from Mr North. This was followed by a beautifully choreographed Dance Show which was the result of a lot of hard work from students all across the school. 

RAG Dance Show – Monday, 7 December 2015

Izzy Barker Dunmill sent us this report:

“On Monday evening, students from various year groups took part in the annual RAG Dance Show, to raise money for our RAG charities. The committee was made up of Year 11 students, who choreographed a range of dances. GCSE and AS Dance groups also performed along with a very entertaining dance by the teachers. The theme of the show was a train journey, with each dance being performed at a different tube station. This year’s show was a fantastic success and we raised a lot of money in support of our RAG charities. The committee would like to thank everyone who was involved especially Mrs White, Lead Teacher of Dance, who organised the event.”

Day 2 – Time Warp and Would I lie to you? – Tuesday, 8 December 2015

Tuesday took us back and forward in time as the Sixth Form and Year 8 went all out with the Time Warp dress up theme. It was great to see so many faces at 'Would I Lie to You' in the auditorium, helping us to increase our charity total and allowing everyone to get to know a little too much about the students and teachers lives with their funny stories.

Day 3 – When I Grow Up and X Factor - Wednesday, 9 December 2015

Wednesday was all about what the Year 9's, Year 11's and Sixth Former's wanted to be when they grow up; we had a range of costumes from police women to jailbirds and astronauts to Tesco workers. It was good fun for all involved. The lunchtime event was very popular as students rushed to see their favourite teachers sing well-known ballads. Everyone enjoyed the Language Department and Science Departments performances along with a duet from Mr Saputo and Will Richards and of course our school boy band who we welcome back every year. However, the Leadership Group stormed the stage and proved very popular winning themselves an encore!

Day 4 – Tube Stations – Thursday, 10 December 2015

Thursday was dedicated to a Tube Stations dressing up theme and there were a fantastic variety of costumes which everyone was really looking forward to dressing up in. There were football teams, angels (The Angel Islington), elephants (Elephant and Castle), bakers and the odd Sherlock Holmes (both Baker Street). There was no lunchtime event as we prepared for the Carol Service which was a beautiful service led by our very large, talented choir. 

Day 5 – The Night Before Christmas and 'Man O Man' – Friday, 11 December 2015

Finally, Friday brought the whole school together as we all dressed down for the Night before Christmas. All students and staff were involved and it proved to be a great money maker pushing up the total for our Rag charities. The lunchtime event was what everyone had been looking forward to, 'Man O Man'. The Hall filled to capacity and we watched the boys battle it out, making a fool out of themselves for a good cause. 

All in all it was a fantastic week, which was enjoyed by everybody. It was wonderful to see so many people getting involved. Of course, the most important thing is that as a school we raised a fantastic sum of money for some really deserving charities and that is something we should all be very proud of. The Invicta RAG Charities 2015 are Anthony Nolan, Alzheimer’s Society, Kent Search and Rescue, Army of Angels and Holding on Letting go.

Thank you to everyone who donated, dressed up, sang, danced, organised and held buckets. We hope to bring you our final total raised in next week’s edition of Invicta News.
