Kindergarten and Junior children are keeping fit to help raise money for Children in Need this afternoon.

Each class is taking part in The Joe Wicks 24 Hour PE Challenge and will be able to encourage each other via live screening from their very own form room.

Head of Junior School, Miss Samantha Long, said:  “Helping others is a big part of life at Gad’s Hill and I am very proud of how committed our children are to supporting such a worthy cause.

“Our School Council met to decide how best to get involved and I was thrilled when they suggested the national children’s charity fitness task.”

As well as working-out together today, children throughout the school have been fundraising at home by completing age-related projects as part of Children in Need’s ‘Act you Age’ challenge.

Brother and sister Tireni and Tara wrote stories in the same number of days as their ages and raised £200, while siblings Teddy, 9, read nine books in nine days, and Vivienne, 5, painted five pictures in five days.

Well done to sisters Freya and Clara, who walked and cycled 10 and eight miles respectively and the Titler children who ran a mile each at six and 7pm.

Kind hearted Scarlett donated a pound from her pocket money for each of her tender years and Finn completed 11 laps of the school car park on his skateboard!

Miss Long added:  “Thank you to all the children and their families for their creative contributions and generous donations to our online Children in Need Just Giving charity page”.
