Hertfordshire Pupils Soak Up the Fun with SpongeBob SquarePants for Jeans for Genes Day | Nickelodeon UK

UK - School children were treated to a surprise visit from Nickelodeon superstar SpongeBob SquarePants on Friday 18th January 2019 after flexing their creative muscles to design him some new jeans!

SpongeBob handed out prizes including scooters, guitars, ukuleles, footballs and rugby balls.

Pupils at St. Hilda’s Prep School and Bluebird Nursery in Bushey, Hertfordshire welcomed the famous Nickelodeon cartoon character after winning a national competition as part of Jeans for Genes Day with their ideas for his new pair of denim jeans.

The whole school was tasked with coming up with a new design for SpongeBob's pair of denim trousers as homework and was selected as the winning school out of hundreds of entries.

Pupils, who wore their jeans for the visit with their uniform tops, have helped raise over £150 to help Jeans for Genes transform the lives of children across the UK with life-altering genetic disorders.

Sarah Styles, Headmistress of St Hilda’s Prep School, told the Watford Observer: “Our girls are delighted to have won this prize, which is supporting such a great and worthy cause.

“We at St Hilda’s Prep School and Bluebird Nursery are heartened to know that our donation to Jeans for Genes will make a difference to those who are living with a life-altering genetic disorder. At St.

“Hilda’s Prep School and Bluebird Nursery, we pride ourselves on being a tightknit and caring community and are keen that our pupils understand the importance of charity, which we value as much as academia.”

This years Jeans for Genes Day will take place on Friday 20th September 2019. For more information about Jeans for Genes Day and to find out how you can host fun-packed day of denim in your school or workplace to raise money for the 500,000 children in the UK with Genetic Disorders, please visit
