SUCCESSFUL SCHOOL SPONSORED WALK - FRIDAY 22 SEPTEMBERThs sun shone as the day of the walk dawned, making conditions perfect for the School's annual charity walk. Kitted out, enthusiastic and ready to go, tutor groups left at staggered intervals, keen to embark on this physical challenge. Having paid heed to the need for sensible clothing, footwear and sufficient supplies, spirits were high and remained so as the morning progressed. Navigating and orienteering skills were tried and tested on occassions but as lunchtime approached and the hills and dales gave way to more urban surroundings, an air of competitiveness set in. Having been the first to leave, 10 Port were also the first to make it over the finish line, with a steady stream of (mostly) happy hikers following. The welcome sight of the school, and the beckoning of the weekend, diminished the niggling blisters and aching limbs, while providing a welcome sense of achievement and satisfaction. Big smiles, tired feet and a massive congratulations are due to all!
A big thank-you to all who have supported this event. All sponsorship money raised should be paid over to the school via the 'ParentPay' system, by October half-term at the latest. All funds received will then be donated to 'Pancreatic Cancer', a charity democratically chosen by tutor groups, and one which is particularly close to the school.
