Just before half term, The Primary School was asked to dovetail their House Colour Day with the Secondary School’s Sponsored Run. As it turned out, a lot of running was completed, a large amount of money was collected and many tired children went home feeling like Marathon runners.
Each class was allocated half an hour to run around a track measuring approximately 130 metres. After completing a lap, children were given a straw which represented a house point. Running alongside the younger children were students from the Secondary School, two US Marines and four nurses from Kramare Hospital all of whom were supported by a cheering crowd. Needless to say, the atmosphere was great.
At the end of the day, the straws were counted and the results were as follows
On average, each House ran just over 200 kilometres that day whilst at the time of writing, over 2000 euros has been collected just from the Primary School.
Well done to everyone involved. You were all superstars.
