On Friday 25 October at 12pm, fifty four Year 10 and 11 pupils, together with Mr Foster and Miss Owens, began the 24 hour challenge for our 3 chosen charities:- Mount Edgcumbe Hospice, the RNLI and Care International. We started off with a massive game of dodgeball and then spent the following 23 hours working our way through various activities - from dodgeball to dingbats, from 'Game of Life' to games of 'Just Dance', from badminton to basketball, 'Rock-it ball' to 'Rummikub', kickboxing to kingpin; and table tennis to trampolining. Most of us continued through the small hours - with someone being active in every one of the 24 very long and tiring hours! Particular highlights had to be the mass game of benchball on the Friday evening, playing 'one knee' at about 3am, some of the Year 11's playing the longest version of 'Game of Life' EVER; and everyone's somewhat tired attempts at dodgeball on the Saturday morning!

Joined by a large number of staff throughout the 24 hours, we continued to challenge ourselves to keep going and experience as many activities as we could. Some slept, some kept going but everyone had a great time and we have hopefully raised a massive amount for charity.

Please can we remind all participants to bring in their sponsor forms and money raised to Mrs Chard in the Finance Office (break and lunch times only)as soon as possible.

Well done to all of those who took part - 24 hours is not easy, but you stuck with it! And a massive thank you to all of the staff who gave up their time to come and supervise the event.
