Fright Night 2021

Posted: 9th November 2021

Scary scenes at sunset…

Priory Sixth organised some scary scenarios on Friday 5th November as ‘Fright Night’ was celebrated at St Augustine’s Priory.  Terror reigned for a good cause, as all money raised from the event is being donated to Care4Calais to assist Afghan refugees.  Lucy in Priory Sixth reports,

‘As is St Augustine’s Priory’s tradition, the advent of shorter days and darker nights was marked by our annual ‘Fright Night’ organised by Lower Sixth for the younger girls in the Senior School. This year, we decided to fundraise on behalf of the Afghan refugees, particularly women and children.


We decided our theme would be ‘The Plague comes to St Augustine’s Priory’ and the evening comprised of various scenes in which the younger girls were treated to terrifyingly true tales told by Ms King of ghastly events that occurred within our very own school; gory spectacles of plague doctors attempting to treat plague victims inflicted with the most hideous skin diseases; mad scientists (including Mr Ferguson and Mr Alejandro) desperately trying to find cures; and murderous clowns (Mr Green and Mr Kane!) relentlessly chasing away those who attempted to infiltrate their labs.

The evening was a great success and resulted in us raising £510 for our charity, Care4Calais. We would like to thank all the teachers who helped us in making the event such fun and a special thanks to Ms Hales for her support in arranging the event and for her help on the night.’
