Today the Year 12 BTEC Sports Studies classes participated in a practical assessment for their Outdoor Activities Unit. They demonstrated a wide range of skills in rock climbing and had lots of fun in doing so. The PE department would like to thank the team from Pathway Activities for bringing in their climbing wall.
Glengormley High School pupils raised an amazing £722.90 for the Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children by engaging in its ‘ReadOn 2018’ programme. The pupils challenged themselves to read as many books as possible within a seven day period and collected sponsorship from family and friends.
As well as raising money for a wonderful charity, the initiative encouraged the pupils to read more than they normally would on a daily basis. Everyone loved getting involved and the charity were thrilled with the total raised.
Here’s what some of the ReadOn participants had to say:
Abbi Dickson Year 8
“I really enjoyed taking part in ReadOn to as the aim was to raise as much money as possible for the charity. The challenge was really important as some of the money raised will go to Daisy Lodge, a place where families can spend time together. I think that ReadOn should take place in every school.”
Jack Millar Year 8
“ReadOn is important as we raised a lot of money for charity. It is good to know that the money is going to help children with cancer.”
