Friday 22nd September 2017

The day began with great excitement as a sea of team coloured shirts filled Mary Rose Academy. Pupils and staff divided into 4 different teams – Red, Blue, Green and Yellow to launch the start of our new intra competition here at Mary Rose Academy. Our new in school competition will run throughout the year in the form of lots of different exciting events, for example theme days, morning exercise and competitions with a grand finale at Sports Day next June!

The Sponsored Walk began at 11:00 on the Secondary Playground with everyone meeting with their lap score cards ready to warm up! We were really pleased to see lots of parents, grand-parents and carers there to support us too! After a big group warm up our new Head of School Jo gave us a countdown before we began our walk in the sunshine!

We all completed as many laps as we could within an hour collecting stamps for each lap. We enjoyed talking with our friends and waving our team banners as we travelled around the school site.
