Sport and fundraising were the order of the day at Saint Martin’s as the school took part in this year’s Sport Relief.
Girls across the year groups at the Independent School in Brueton Avenue took part in a host of fun-packed sporting events and activities – all in the name of raising vital cash to support vulnerable people in the UK and in the world’s poorest countries.
The day of fundraising at Saint Martin’s began with a special assembly featuring junior school gymnasts and a video explaining exactly where the money raised by Sport Relief goes and the amazing work it does and supports.
A feast of other sporting events took place throughout the day, including an obstacle course, target practice, a magic carpet event and the hugely popular jump it.
And the grand Sport Relief finale was a closely-fought inter-house football match – the winners of which were the Helmets.
“Pupils and staff at Saint Martin’s really embraced this year’s Sport Relief – having a fantastic day of sporting events and raising vital cash for such worthy causes at home in the UK and in some of the world’s poorest countries,” said Headteacher Nicola Smillie.
“Well done to everyone for taking part and the staff for co-ordinating what was a really fun day.
“Raising money for good causes is hugely important to us here at Saint Martin’s and provides a wonderful ethos for the girls to take forward with them throughout their lives.”
