CHILDREN and staff at King’s Ely Acremont and Nursery ended the half term in typical energetic and community-spirited fashion with their ‘Captain Sir Tom Moore 100 Challenge’.

The fun-filled ‘Charity in Action Day’, organised by Mrs Walker, challenged Acremont pupils and staff to complete 100 laps of the garden on the morning of May 28th. But in true King’s Ely spirit, a whopping 1,517 laps were completed, which is approximately the distance that it is from Ely to the Isle of Wight!

Faye Fenton-Stone, Head of King’s Ely Acremont, said: “The children showed great resilience and team spirit, cheering on their House peers and classmates throughout the morning, and smashing the target to complete a collective century of laps!

“We rounded up the half term in the only way we know how; with great big smiles on our faces, feeling a positive sense of completion and laughing all the way.”

The event was not only a heck of a lot of fun, but funds were also being raised for Acremont’s charities. We’ll let you know the fundraising total once all the pennies have been counted.

Congratulations to everyone involved – including Saturn House for completing the most laps (352 to be precise)!
