TEACHERS GET DUNKED AT CHATHAMS GRIFFIN FEST

It was far from a regular school day at Chatham High, with students swapping class for bubble soccer, water slides, and ninja warrior courses.

It was all part of the school’s annual Griffin Fest, which raises money for mental health and wellness programs.

In its fourth year, teachers say it continues to be a hit.

“It’s grown into a way to celebrate our positive well being within the school, getting young people outside their comfort zone and trying a lot of new activities,” said Mr Paff.

Teachers even got into the spirit, with students having the chance to dunk them into water tanks.
