Pupils ran our annual Sponsored Cross Country in aid of the charities Go MAD in Tanzania and A21 Campaign in November. Go MAD exists to improve the health and living standards of villagers in the Diocese of Mara and A21 works towards abolishing human trafficking in the 21st century.
Pupils are aiming to raise as much as possible for projects which include the provision of a large water tank and toilet at a clinic being built in a remote village in Tanzania with no access to healthcare, as well as contributing to A21’s crisis care centres.
This year the XC looked a little different, with pupils running for one hour in year group bubbles on different days. Altogether they ran an incredible 957 kilometres and we expect that this will translate into much support for these two charities. Special congratulations to Jimmy, Year 11, who broke the school record by running 15k, Elias in Year 10, who ran 14k and Henry, Year 8, and Cecilia, Year 9, who both ran 11k. Jimmy wins the boys trophy and Cecilia the girls. The winning house was Bonhoeffer.
