On February 4th a group of 31 students took part in our annual Skipathon to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.
All of the skippers worked extremely hard in completing the task of being active and involved in skipping for an hour. It was hard work but enjoyable and all of the students involved had fun. Some learnt different skipping techniques with some even mastering how to skip Double Dutch!
The event was a massive success and I would like to take the opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to all of the skippers and helpers who made the event a tremendous success. I would also like to extend my thanks to Mrs. Castrey and Miss. Bennett for giving up their time and joining in as well.
As a result of their hard work the skippers have managed to raise over £1000! This is the highest amount that has ever been raised during a skipathon.
Once again, my thanks, and I look forward to next year’s event.
