On Friday 21st March, pupils at Herman Academy joined millions across the nation in raising money for Sports Relief. Children and staff came to the academy dressed as their sporting heroes, ready to raise money for people both at home and abroad less fortunate than themselves.
Taking part in activities ranging from aerobics and keepie-uppie to egg-and-spoon-race, skipping and hula-hooping, children from Reception to Year 6 raised £500 through a morning of fun.
Natalie Allen, Leader of Physical Education said, “This has been a tremendous achievement for the academy. I am so pleased that the children can really appreciate the essential work that Sport Relief does whilst enjoying a fun packed morning at Herman. We had 100% participation with some children who may not enjoy sport as much as others really getting involved in the fun.”
The amount raised further underlines the academy’s established history of raising money for charity. Vice Principal, Mark Thompson, said, “Since joining Herman, I have been in awe at the selflessness that our children and parents demonstrate when getting involved with good causes. This is testament to both the children themselves and the culture that the school has cemented.”
