STUDENTS from Scalby School indulged in a plethora of fun activities in memory of a former classmate.

The Year 11 pupils took part in ELLIEFEST at Scarborough Rugby Club, to raise £460 for Ellie’s Fund, set up following the death of 14-year-old Ellie Othick-Bowmaker from a brain tumour last year.

The day featured a host of events including rugby coaching, Zumba, beauty treatments, bands, dancing, a prom dress viewing and even sumo wrestling.

Student Niikan Tehrani said: “I enjoyed the event because it was great to spend time with our year group doing fun activities to raise money for a good cause.

“I hope that we do this again in future because days like these are what you will remember when you look back at school.”

Felloe pupil Ayse Aydemir added: “I really had a great time because all the activities were well organised and not the kind of thing you do every day.
