A massive thank you to the following people who came and planted our new trees, which were kindly donated by several of the colleges, led by Newnham. Paul Anderson and Alisa Fordham from Newnham College. Elisa Meschini, school governor and Cambridge County Councillor. Alex Collis, Kevin Price and Martin Smart King’s Hedges ward, councillors. The children came out and helped, socially distanced of course, even Duncan got stuck in!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Wow! What a day! Me2Club, SoToSpeak, Nursery, Reception, KS1 and KS2 all did laps of the playground and field to raise money for charity in our favourite sports gear. We saw karate suits, horse riding uniforms and even our parents’ football kits!
Building on from assemblies led by Miss Sapsford, we were able to apply what we knew about stamina and paced ourselves to not tire out too quickly. Clearly, the Daily Mile is having a great impact on KS2 children.
Our goal was to collectively run the distance to Dublin (250 miles in a straight line). We’re proud to say that we achieved that with flying colours. Every child aged 2 to 11 played their part in a really successful day!
We mustn’t forget what all this running is for: Sports Relief. Thanks to our generous donations, King’s Hedges was able to raise a whopping £271.42. This money will go towards people who need it the most across the globe and in our country, so we should give ourselves a big pat on the back. Well done everybody!
