School Site Sporting Successes as all Students Fully Embrace Supporting Sport Relief

The school site celebrated Sport Relief in true Woodlands Meed style with plenty of energy, commitment and FUN!  Students were encouraged to dress in their favourite sporting attire which ranged from football shirts, to rugby jersies, to Sport Relief t-shirts.  There was even evidence of sweat bands and leg warmers!

The day started with the whole school participating in The Sport Relief Mile.  We really could not be prouder of our students who tackled this distance with enthusiasm and determination, as they completed eight laps of the field!  The support and encouragement for one another was truly amazing!

All students then had the opportunity to bounce, cycle and row in aid of sport relief, and they attempted these challenges with great effort and dedication.  A massive thank you to Burgess Hill Academy for loaning us the rowers and exercise bikes.

Furthermore there were plenty of other activities on offer for the students to participate in.  Here are the results from a few of these activities:

The fun didn’t stop there, as Emma and her team decided to challenge their students to do as many bounces as they could for Sport Relief during their Rebound sessions.  Everyone tried really hard to bounce higher, to bounce for longer, and to bounce with style!  Emma was extremely proud of her rebounders who accumulated a whopping 2,884 bounces!  Well done guys!

We finished our day’s celebration with a 45 minute Zumba session curtesy of the amazing Anita!  Despite the students’ already very active day, this was hugely popular, with most of the school attending and matching the energy levels of the very inspirational Anita.

It was a fantastic day of activities and fund raising.  A massive thank you to everyone for all their support and enthusiasm in making it the success that it was!
