Teacher torture to raise money for charity

Every Christmas at Ripley for charity week, each form and every pupil does something to raise money for a number of local, national and international charities.

This fund-raising happens in a number of ways, such as bakes sales and sweet stalls, to sporting events and challenges. However form 10 Exton went one step further to raise money for charity with… I’M A TEACHER, GET ME OUT OF HERE!

The aim of the challenge was for six brave teachers to sit at the front of the gym, and be presented with a variety of bugs over 5 rounds. Each round the teachers were given bigger critters to eat… the challenges were mealworms, crickets, a locust, a Thailand water beetle and finally a cocktail challenge including guts and gore from all the different bugs.

All the teachers bravely managed to complete all 5 rounds, with Mr Salthouse completing the final challenge in the fastest time to be crowned the king! This event happened on the 18th of December 2014 and still, in 2015, Mrs Price has revealed that she still can’t eat a seed without it reminding her of the texture of a bug.

In the end 10 Exton raised a whopping £146 for charity which all went to a good cause… well done 10 Exton, and the brave teachers who took part!

The teachers, ready to begin their challenge!
