On the 1st and 14th of July 2021, students from all year groups came together to run, jog, or walk five kilometres in aid of Race for Life for Cancer Research, raising money for the cause. All took to the field with gusto, completing 12 laps of the school field. Some students also dressed up in pink and adorned glittered shirts, getting fully involved in the pink theme.
Well done to those runners who completed the event in a sub-25-minute time, and to all joggers and walkers who completed the race. Thank you to students and staff who helped Mrs Barr organise, set up the event, be tail walkers, hand out medals, collect money, and take photos; therefore, allowing it all to run smoothly.
Headteacher, Mr Goodwin said: “It has been so good to see the entire school community come together for this amazing community event after such a difficult year.”
Mr Goodwin – along with staff members Mr Russell, Mr Harrison, Mrs Dennis, Mr Simms, Mrs Barr, and Mrs Griffiths – also took to the field, with a special mention going to Mr Zaremba who completed the distance twice in one day.
All events were brilliant, students behaved exceptionally and raised an incredible grand total of £5,800 in aid of Cancer Research, showing the amazing and caring community that South Wirral High School is.
