Battens Race - St Charles School

The 1st June saw the first Battens Race held at St Charles School in Tudhoe. The event involved the whole school, along with help from Tudhoe Grange and the Kyran Richmond Fundraising Team. Kyran also came and cheered on the children and presented the winning teams with chocolate medals!

The whole idea for the event was every child in the school ran as part of a huge relay race. All the classes were split into teams of 4, and each team ran their relay against the clock! The times got quicker and quicker as the morning went on. Once everyone had completed their lap, we added the times up and got the winning overall class, and the winning team of 4.

The school children and parents were very generous with donations, raising £285. Everyone had a great time, running and cheering on their classmates.
