Wycombe Abbey Fireworks Night 2022
7 November 2022 - All
It was wonderful to host our annual fireworks display on Wednesday 2 November; we were delighted to welcome pupils, families and staff from the Wycombe Abbey community to this event.
In the lead-up to the day, LIV pupils from each Senior House created bonfire Guys in their House colour. Some of the final pieces were quite substantial in size, and the Headmistress, Mrs Duncan, judged the winners based on their interpretation of the House colour theme and quality of presentation. The winner was Angry Birds by Barry, followed by Campbell’s Ribena carton and Wendover’s dragon.
The Guys were displayed in Big School for everyone to see on fireworks night, along with their House stalls. There was an excited buzz in Big School as this was the first School event to be held there since the completion of the renovation project. Pupils and families took part in a tombola, lollipop lottery, a hamper raffle and bought clothing and jewellery. Overall, £3,185 was raised. This will be split equally between our whole School elected charities: Ripple Africa in Malawi (our focus this year is on their education projects) and Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Service in Wycombe where money will go towards art therapy. Money was also raised to help the Bee Society by selling the famous Wycombe Abbey honey!
Despite the rainy weather, the fireworks didn’t disappoint, and it was an excellent way to end the evening.
We would like to thank everyone who worked so hard to make this special event happen.
