Rising Stars and Sir John Leman’s RAG week
Members of Rising Stars show off their skills during Sir John Leman’s RAG week
RAG Week (Raising and Giving) is an annual event organised by the Sir John Leman Sixth Form Council and assisted by students at the High School.
This year, past and present members of Rising Stars have taken the opportunity to show off skills and talents developed at Rising Stars.
Some of the things the council have done on the run up to RAG week are very similar to those required for a Rising Stars show, such as planning the whole event from scratch, keeping finances and balancing a budget, fundraising and recruiting volunteers, creating the stage and decorating the set, programming and controlling a DMX lighting system, setting up and balancing microphones and sound equipment, taking to the stage as a presenter or in musical performances, all while working together as a team to get the job done.
They are hoping to raise raising £600 to split between their three chosen charities – Beccles Men’s Shed, Alzheimer’s UK & Aluwani South Africa.
There is still time to help them achieve their goal. For more information and to donate, please visit https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/2018ragweek
