The Ice Bucket Challenge reaches KPS!

Mr Pirouet gets ready!At Monday’s assembly Mr Pirouet honoured a challenge he had received from two students to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge.

The Ice Bucket Challenge is currently an international phenomenon. It is raising awareness and money for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and so far has been very successful with lots of people getting behind the idea.

The ice is poured!By dumping ice water over your head, you experience for a small moment some of the sensation that those suffering from the condition go through. Mr Pirouet said after he had the ice water dumped over his head that he had felt pain in his neck and his back had “gone into spasms” from the cold. Not only did he complete the challenge but he also pledged to donate $50 to towards a MND/ALS charity.

Prior to the challenge, following the “rules”, Mr Pirouet nominated every staff member at KPS who would like to be part of the challenge to take it up at Friday’s assembly. So we are looking forward to our Ice Bucket Challenge, Part 2!

Which staff will take up the challenge next?

Of course it was filmed! Watch the ice challenge below:
