Next week (14th March – 18th March) during PE lessons students will be completing a MILE RUN in support of the Charity SPORT RELIEF. Sport Relief is a joint venture between BBC Sport and Comic Relief and aims to bring the worlds of sport and entertainment together to raise much needed funds to help vulnerable people leading tough lives here at home and in the poorest countries in the world. Many of you will have seen the adverts and programmes over the last few weeks or so promoting the event and this students a chance for them to show their support.
The Sport Relief mile run slots that have been allocated in students usual “B” PE Lesson (2nd PE lesson of the week). This means that the run will not interfere with other subject lessons. In order to raise money for this charity we ask students to try to bring a voluntary contribution of £1 to the lesson (or whatever they can spare!). This means that for this lesson only students should not bring their usual PE Kit but kit that they would like to run a mile in.
Students are encouraged to wear red clothing when taking part in the event to show their support for Sport Relief!!
Since starting in 2006 the school has raised nearly £10,000 for the charity and two years ago in 2014 we managed to raise our highest ever amount of £2640. In addition to the Mile Runs taking place throughout the week, on Friday March 18th the PE Dept. are running a cake sale, raffle to win signed sporting memorabilia, sponge throwing at staff and other sporting based games.
Under no circumstances is face paint and hair dye to be used as once the students have completed the mile they will change into their normal school uniform and continue with the normal school day.
