Colour Run and 24-hours of Sport

Nov 21, 2022

The School was transformed into a rainbow of colour as pupils from First Form to Sixth Form ran a 5km route around the School grounds raising money for the Charity Sport in Mind’. Staff took much delight in throwing different coloured powder at the participants as they walked, jogged or ran the course. There were beaming smiles and a palpable sense of joy as pupils crossed the finishing line covered from head to toe in colour (as were those ‘enthusiastic’ teachers that threw the powder). The Colour Run launched the next fundraising event – 24 hours of sport – which was also organised by Lower Sixth student Alice (Swift).

Following the success of the 24-hour charity football match last year, Alice convinced a group of Fifth and Sixth Form pupils to join another ambitious fundraising event – a 24-hour rotation of different sports throughout the night, including cross-fit disco and basketball. It was a Herculean effort from the pupils involved and the staff who stayed the entire night. Special thanks go to Mr Robinson and Mr Hughes, and the Headmaster himself who came to take part in a table tennis match at midnight. We are delighted to announce that Alice and her helpers have raised an incredible £1540.41 so far.
