Tonbridge welcomed over 600 primary school pupils, plus members of various local organisations and senior citizens, to take part in a day of sporting, artistic and academic activities.
The aim of ‘Whole School Community Day’ is to reach out to members of the local community and inspire people to try something new.
Activities were either run or supported by boys and staff from the school.
The huge range of activities included archery, photography, arts and crafts, a large number of sports, creative writing, dance, drama, digital creativity, language classes and music.
Meanwhile 300 Tonbridge students took part in a ‘half-marathon’ sponsored walk to raise money for Hospice in the Weald, The Silas Pullen Fund (for the Brain Tumour Charity) and Child Action Lanka.
At the end of the afternoon, children either ran or walked a ‘mass mile’ with support from Tonbridge boys and staff.
Fundraising continued into the evening with the school praes (prefects), holding their ‘Dancing with the Praes’ ballroom event in aid of Pancreatic Cancer UK and Alzheimer’s Research UK.
