Walk around the world
Upper Batley High School organised and ran the ‘Round the world challenge’ in PE lessons over a one week period with learners being asked to do the coopers run challenge, this involved running 12 miles around the school track, or using a tread mill.
Learners were also asked to raise sponsorship money in preparation for this event. The results were staggering with some great individual fund raising efforts. Several boys raised over £50. One Year 9 learner raised £200 individually.
All the money raised went to the ‘Forget me not’ charity
Overall the total raised was £1360 with students collectively running a distance of 112 miles. We didn't make it around the world but we did make it to Skegness!
