Greenfield Supports Sport Relief 2016

posted 19 Apr 2016, 08:39 by Sophie Lewis
On Wednesday 23rd March Greenfield Community College successfully raised £782.85 for Sport Relief. The sport-filled day saw an array of different events taking place. Firstly, the PE department challenged both staff and students to run/walk/jog a combined equivalent of ‘Land’s End to John O’ Groats’ as part of a Sport Relief Mile. The target set to complete this distance was 874 miles. Students took part in PE and T4S lessons throughout the day. This target was surpassed with ease as the pupils managed a fantastic achievement of 1,162 miles.

Furthermore, pupils at lunchtime had the opportunity to ‘beat the teacher’ in different sporting events. Students paid a small donation to challenge teachers from PE, Maths, Dance, Science and English departments in activities such as badminton, table tennis, netball, hula hooping, crossbar challenge and keepy ups in football. It proved an incredibly popular activity as pupils were queuing up to challenge their teachers during lunchtime.

A big thanks to all staff and pupils who made the day an incredible success. We look forward to next year’s Sport Relief.
