Did Sports Relief reach your school?

    We did the Sports Relief Mile (mainly due to one determined member of staff who organised everything.) The children enjoyed it; it raised a bit of money for a good cause. I'm not sure there were any downsides.

    We did the sports relief mile but also sold cakes at break time. Not sure if the two went together. I bought a cake instead of running.

    We did a carousel of different multi sports activities. Whole school outside most of morning. Blimmin freezing but good fun had by all and a fair amount of money raised through donations.

    My year 9 daughter had to run a mile today and donate a pound for the privilege. She suggested to her teacher paying double NOT to run but was knocked back on that one :)

    All we ended up doing in my last few years was fail at Rock Challenge.

    I think better of you for failing.

    I work in FE.

    The sports/public services staff organised a 2 mile run along the riverbank at our campus. I walked!!!!

    There was then a campus 'bake off' organised, which I judged with a colleague who makes wedding cakes. It was a hard job - but someone had to do it!!! :)

    If you like cake it is not a hard job!

    They did a mufti day with kids paying a pound, there were sports activities in break and lunch time...

    If every kid paid up that's £1000 odd raised.

    Sports themed activities all day. We raised £500.

    I love cake, but we had a heck of a lot of entries to chomp through and some tasted pretty disgusting. Both students and staff had put a lot of effort into the various classes and I was caked (and biscuited) out by the end of the judging session.

    We told our kids they could wear trainers on Friday for a contribution of 20p. 4 kids in my form came in trainers so they raised 80p
