Stronsay School Sport Relief

Stronsay School Sport Relief 

During February and March 2020 our school took part in Sport Relief. This year the primary and secondary pupils did a sponsored swim and the daily mile challenge.
The sponsored swim took place at the Stronsay swimming pool on the 18th of February. Both the upper primary and the secondary pupils contributed. The total amount of money raised was an amazing £165, kindly donated from family and friends of the pupils.
The daily mile challenge was held on the netball court at the back of the school and was from the 9th to the 13th of March. Primary attempt the daily mile each day either in the mornings or after lunch, but this week was a little bit more special as we counted our laps and secondaries joined us for a few of the days. The average amount of individual laps each day was around 18 laps which is 1 mile. The primary total came to 1706 laps which is almost 95 miles!! Most primary pupils also kept track of how active they were in and out of school on a chart.
The nursery also took part over the week by having an egg and spoon race, an obstacle course, musical statues and hide and seek. The nurseries raised £42 and Hannah Johnston won half of this.
Also in the staff guessing competition £20 was raised and Mr King won half of that.
We would like to say thank you to everyone involved and thank you for reading this.
