Wearing pink for Swaziland

Recently, the Swazi team ran a fundraiser in order to raise money for our worthwhile cause in Swaziland and to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the well-known film Mean Girls. Everywhere you looked, Bedales was scattered with pink, from pink hair accessories, to complete pink outfits. Even staff, including some male teachers, joined in. At such short notice, the day was a raging success and it was great to see the whole school pulling together for such a fantastic cause. The total raised for Swaziland was £473. Well done Bedales! After all, “on Wednesdays we wear pink”.
