Form 1-3 completed the sponsored work in aid of their respective House Charities on Wednesday. It was a very successful afternoon as most pupils were able to reach the summit and make their way back to school. There was lots of encouragement from staff; Mrs Kenworthy was determined that no one from her house were going to drop out! It was really nice to see students encouraging others who were having difficulty- usually bribing them with sweets! Pupils could be heard talking, laughing and moaning as there was no wi-fi! The weather turned out fine, so there were some great views on our way down. Some of the students even found a sheep skeleton! The walk was very enjoyable and gave me the chance to chat to people whilst enjoying the fresh air.
Several students raised over £70 for their house charities, Austen (Marpha Foundation), Brunel (Cancer Research UK), Churchill (Hope House), Elgar (St Kentigerns) and Newton (Unicef), which is fantastic.
