All for one, onesie for all!
29th April 2015

On Friday 24 April the students and teachers at St Mary’s Senior School, Cambridge donned onesies to raise funds for the school’s first capital appeal project - the Science Hub. 

The Junior School and Senior School students spent last term collecting loose change at home to fill a plastic test tube, but they wanted to do more to help raise funds for the project.  The Student Council voted unanimously to hold a Onesie Day and the students have been encouraging everyone, including all the staff, to get involved.  Each person has donated £1 towards the Science Hub project for the privilege of wearing a onesie for the day.  The Science Hub will ensure that all the Science laboratories at the school are sited together and are of the highest standard expected in a school awarded “outstanding” in all aspects of its Independent Schools Inspectorate inspection in 2014.

Charlotte Avery, Headmistress at St Mary’s School, Cambridge, said: "I am thrilled that the girls have come up with this idea and I am delighted to give the event my full support. It’s the first time I have come to school dressed as a giraffe! Ensuring we have world-class facilities to deliver high-quality and inspiring Science lessons, from age four up to 18, will enable us to continue to inspire future generations of scientists and engineers for years to come.”

It is hoped that from the Onesie Day and the test tube fundraising, the students will have raised over £1,500 for the new Science Hub.
