Freemen’s 20/20 Vision plans to ‘Rag and Roll On’ through May!
During May Freemen’s is replacing our usual RAG (Raise and Give) Week, with a number of fundraising activities to ‘Rag and Roll On’ during lockdown and continue to raise money for the Freemen’s 20/20 Vision charities.
Our three main events are:
The 'Out Of The Comfort Zone Challenge' for The Freemen’s Face Shields Appeal
Members of the Senior Leadership Team have promised to undertake challenges that push them outside of their comfort zones and post them on the School website.
Money raised from this campaign will go straight towards buying materials needed by the DT department to continue to produce face shields for the local hospitals, care homes and other front line medical services. So far they have made over 1000 face shields and 500 ear savers for face masks.

Update - Here is our Headmaster taking up a challenge out of his comfort zone.
Mr Roland Martin, Headmaster
Our Headmaster took on a challenge completely out of his comfort zone. Although Mr Martin has a love of the arts, he has never tried completing a piece of artwork himself.
Please see his challenge at taking on a Van Gogh classic with acrylic paints.
Mrs Jemima Edney, Head of Boarding
"Although I have some (very classical) musical training, a singer-songwriter I am not. But who doesn’t dream of being the next Ed Sheeran, so I wrote this little ditty, based on a tune from Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana. The tune itself is known as the Easter Hymn, which is not only apt at this time of year, but also represents re-birth and a new outlook on life, which we will all need to keep in mind as we emerge from this pandemic. I hope the lyrics (also my own) reflect the idea of finding a positive way forward on the other side of this outbreak. The peculiar introductory image suggesting that I am representing Scotland is part of an online spoof Euro Vision Facebook competition that I have entered this song into. I shall let you know if I win…"
