On Monday this week, the Year 6s faithfully turned out during their lunch break and put in the last few miles needed to complete their “Walk a Mile in My Shoes” challenge.
The United Kingdom measures 874 miles from the top of John O’Groats to the westernmost point of Lands End and we surpassed that distance this week. What an amazing effort from all of the Year 6s! An average of 13 miles per student was needed over the course of the term, and some of our students clocked up more than 20! The pupils have also been very committed to raising money for the three great charities we are supporting this year, and with about half of the money in, we have already raised more than £2000 to share out between the Dogs Trust, St Margarets Hospice and Hazlegrove Harambee, where we are putting Sebastian Lekurtut through secondary education in Kenya.
Thanks so much to all of you Year 6s out there! I have been bowled over by the generosity and commitment that you, your family and other sponsors have shown! I hope you are all very proud of the good that you have done through this initiative this term.
