Mr Carr’s Pie Week!

Last week AGGS students were given the unique opportunity (which many of us had been waiting years for!) to pie Mr Carr in the face, all in the name of charity. As part of his 121212, he decided to pull out all the stops for Comic Relief and allowed both the staff and pupils to throw a pie at him.


This extravaganza took place every single lunch time for one week, in various different places around school, ranging from the centenary gardens to the drama studio.

All together, Mr Carr managed to raise £120 and all the money he managed to raise will be going to charity.
