On Wednesday 19th June, 43 students from Years 7 and 8 played Dodgeball for a very good cause. For a number of years, Devizes School students age 11 and 12 have raised cash for The British Heart Foundation by taking part in an ‘ultimate dodgeball’ tournament. Thousands of pounds have been raised through sponsorship, this year will be no exception. The event for the last three years has been organised by Classroom Manager Ollie Clements.

Ollie said: As always the BHF tournament was a huge success. Everyone who participated left with a huge smile on their face. Students played nonstop dodgeball for over an hour and still wanted to carry on into lunch. I would like to thank all the students and parents who have helped to raise money for The British Heart Foundation.

The cash is still being collected, so far just 10 of the students have raised over £550 between them! We are hoping to raise at least £1000 this year.
