Staff Sky Dive for World Challenge!

On Sunday, 5th June, two of our brave staff completed a Sky Dive in order to raise funds for the Sixth Form World Challenge trip taking place in July.  Fortunately, the sun smiled on Ms. Backstrom and Ms. Eyres, who will also be accompanying the students this summer.  

We have been working with World Challenge for a number of years now. This is Ms. Backstrom's 4th expedition and this year she is going out to India Uttarakhand with 14 of our students on 15th July – 12th August.

The students have to fundraise to pay for the trip - £3500 each. They will be working within a community to help build / renovate a youth centre for the local children to use. The expedition also involves trekking around the country and wild camping. So this is a physical, mental and emotional challenge all in one!

Well Done!
