On Tuesday 3rd July, a Whole School Fun Run took place. As part of Year 10 work experience week, Faiq has provided the write up and photography for this event.

Our Sixth Form students decided to encourage fitness in QEGS by organizing a Fun Run, with races for Years 7, 8 and 9, and also a special race for elite runners.

During the sunny morning, amid a heatwave, each year group arrived at the start line wearing brightly coloured clothes (as requested) and they each donated £1.00 to take part in the fun run.  The final run was more competitive, the elite athletes from each year group raced while those that didn’t take part gave their full support.  Harvey Ashworth finished in 1st place in this race.

The pupils gained a valuable lesson in ‘Healthy Body and Healthy Mind’ – wise words used by Dr Butler.

A great time was had by all.

UPDATE: A fantastic £341.15 was raised for the British Heart Foundation.
