All pupils at North Lakes School participated in the nation’s favourite sports day on Friday 18th March raising funds and awareness throughout school.
Children were introduced to issues and met characters throughout the week in assemblies. They shared some of the real life decisions and challenging conditions young people have to experience - some quite shocking! School councillors made trainers for children to collect copper throughout the week and then on Friday we all donned our red sporting outfits for the day.
Each children ran at least a mile showing their support for this worthwhile cause - many parents came along too! Thank you, it was great to see you all jogging the mile! £275 was raised by you all – a big well done as we know from watching the Sports Relief TV on Friday night just how much a small amount can make such a difference. The choir also went to Sainsbury’s and entertained shoppers - they even managed to get shoppers dancing in the aisles too!
So whether you ran a mile, danced in style, limboed forward or hoola hoola’d for the longest time, you did your bit! Well done North Lakes - yet again you have helped make a difference.
