Lucia (Year 2) took on the Duke of Edinburgh Diamond Challenge, learned to ride a bike and rode five miles through Thetford Forest! She has raised over £100 – well done, Lucia! The aim of the challenge was for as many pupils, parents and staff as possible to raise some money by the end of November by challenging themselves to learn a new skill and gain sponsorship for doing it. Any individual who, like Lucia, has raised £60 or more will get their own diamond brooch. If you raised this amount as a group then there will be one brooch but everyone will receive a certificate. We will be submitting all the money raised to the D of E Head office before the closing date later this month.
Look out for more challenge results coming soon. For example, Miss Mann has been learning Polish and Mrs Grove has not only learned breast stroke but last week swam a kilometre!
