On November 4th, Joshua Sweet (Year 7) did a sponsored swim to raise funds for the school's defibrillator campaign. Joshua came up with the idea himself, he said:

"My Gran has some heart problems and as she lives near the school she would benefit from there being a defibrillator there should anything ever happen to her".

After only ever swimming 25 metres before, Joshua decided to have two training sessions first. In his training he managed to swim 500m the first time and 650m the second. He decided to set himself the target of swimming 500 metres in one hour for the sponsored swim.

As it happened, Joshua in fact swam a total of 1000 metres in 48 minutes and raised the amazing sum of £270!

This was an incredibly selfless and admirable thing to do, you have done yourself (and Poltair) very proud...

Well done, Josh!
