Sponsored Swim a huge success

Nursery to Year 8 took part in a sponsored swim on 29th April.

Congratulations to every child in the school, their sponsors and the many parent helpers who took part in the sponsored swim. The children are keen to upgrade the adventure playground - but the cost for a new all-weather surface is astronomical. The RCPA have raised a sum, and the school will match them pound for pound - but the children needed to raise about £8k to make up the shortfall.

They set about it with a will, and clocked up a total of 94.19 km with each child swimming for just 20 minutes - the equivalent of round the Isle of Wight or Dover - Calais - Dover - Calais again!
