Ice-skating Fund-raising event
A group of 13 student from our Meadway site, plus staff, set off to Alexandra Palace in a vintage double decker bus in order to do a sponsored ice skate last week.
As part of The Pavilion’s commitment to British Values, they are raising money for a range of enriching activities including; a climb up Mount Snowdon, fishing and a three day residential outdoor adventure trip. The trip also gave students the opportunity to show kindness to others, be responsible and do something for the wider community.
Staff also joined in the fun, with English teacher, Fatma, completing over 20 laps! At one point, the end of the rink was coned off for another school and our students had to make their way across, with no handrail to hang on to!
Special mentions go to a number of students whose efforts were exceptional. Well done to Caine for helping fellow students who had never skated before! Congratulations to David, who’d never skated before, for showing amazing courage and determination…. and a fantastic sense of humour. Well done to Faisal and Matthew who courageously made their way across. Congrats goes to Kyle who wasn’t too keen, but showed great determination and a final well done goes to Aaron, the last person on the ice, for skating more laps than anyone else!
Money is still pouring in and it looks like we might raise close to £400!
Final thank you’s go to Keith Nason for driving the bus and to Jeremy, Manager of Alexandra Palace for making sure we had a great time!
