Balgowan raises over £6,500 for Sports Relief!
KS2 classes headed up to the field in classes and all had a good go at the (another) first-ever ‘Balgowan Army Assault Course’. The course was 150ft long and included 7 different obstacles that the children had to negotiate. We had races, mini-challenges and even the teachers and adults (including Mr Hines!) had a go, all much to the amusement of the children! Everyone managed to complete the entire course and I can tell you (from personal experience!) that the course was particularly tough and physically demanding!
Hopefully these events have helped to show children that exercise, while being highly important towards good health, can be really great fun as well!
A big thank you needs to go towards the Sports Council that helped choose, promote, organise and run the events; without these fabulous children, the event would not have been possible.
Balgowan raised an unbelievable: £6,573.69
The contributions this year were absolutely stunning and again a huge thank you to all those who contributed. The school will shortly be receiving a certificate from Sport Relief and the amount will be celebrated in an upcoming assembly.
