They have targetted the Rio Olympics.
And now children at Hade Edge School are hosting their own Race to Rio with an exercise campaign in a bid to raise cash for a new school hall.
Staff, children, parents and friends in the community are all mucking in as they host sporting events in the run up to this year’s Rio Olympics to grow the expanding school.
Teacher Emily Cornelius, who has been helping to organise the events, said Hade Edge are aiming to raise £30,000 to build a new hall as numbers of pupils are growing.
Emily said: “The numbers of pupils are expanding so we’re planning to build a new hall and convert the old one into an early years unit for the younger children.
“We currently have 97 pupils but this is growing.”
The children have been getting involved doing a sponsored ‘Wake Up Shake Up’ dance every morning.
The dance is led by the children and helps them to let off steam while earning money for a great cause.
Emily added: “We are doing a 24 hour bike ride on February 26th. There will be six bikes and someone will be riding between 10am and 10am the following morning.
The school are also planning to host various other sporting events, including runs and swims.
“It’s great to see the kids getting involved in something that matters to them, and seeing them enjoy sport too”, Emily added.
