SPORT RELIEF 2018
Sport Relief is a joint venture between BBC Sport and Comic Relief. It aims to bring the worlds of sport and entertainment together to raise much needed cash to help vulnerable people leading tough lives here at home and in the poorest countries in the world. At West Bridgford School we are huge supporters of this charity and in the PE Department, on the penultimate week of term, we are running a series of Sport Relief Miles to allow students to support this cause as well.
We are running a Sport Relief Mile for every half year group within their usual PE slots and students are encouraged to wear red clothing when taking part in the event in PE to show their support!! In order to get involved with the event we would ask that students bring a voluntary contribution of £1 on the day of your mile which will be collected at the PE Dept. at the start of the lesson.
In 2016 the school raised over £4000 for the charity and we are hoping 2018 will be even better!! In addition to the mile runs in lessons, on FRIDAY 23rd we will also have sponge throwing at staff, a cake sale and a raffle where signed sporting memorabilia can be won. The West Bridgford Staff are also having an 11-a-side football match after school on Friday 23rd March and students are encouraged to come and support. We are also hoping that GB athlete Sophie Hahn MBE will be able to join us during the day to inspire and support our students during the events.
Whilst students are encouraged to wear red clothing for their PE lesson they will be in normal uniform for the other lessons during the day. We hope it will prove to be a great week of Sport Relief Miles culminating in a fantastic day on Friday 23rd March!!
