Children in Need 2014 sparked numerous good deeds across the borough last Friday (November 14).
Students at Ark William Parker Academy took part in a special mufti day.
The student leadership group rose to the challenge and decided to organise a number of events.
During break and lunch time students took part in a competition to guess the number of balloons in a Mini which was kindly supplied by a member of staff.
Students even used their maths skills to find the answer by working out the volume of the car and the volume of a balloon.
In another event 20 staff volunteered snippets of information about themselves.
Students had to guess who the teacher was, and to add to the challenge they also had to use a little geography and locate the numbered Pudsey sticker as well.
Some of the facts included which male teacher is qualified as a masseur, which teacher was in a boy band and which member of staff has completed the highest bungee jump in the world.
A “Name the Pudsey” competition was also held in the library;
