Next week, to help those in need, we (the Year 8 boys) are asking everyone at the Prep to try to help us complete the Seven Summits Challenge. It’s your children’s chance to take part in a Virtual Mountain Climbing Experience!
Early Years and Nursery are fundraising for our local community foodbank. Years 3 to 5 are fundraising to help stop youth homelessness. Years 6 to 8 are fundraising to help everyone at King’s College Hospital.
The PE department are helping out, we have staff putting on their crampons and all your children will need is some time, some stairs or a step, and some courage!
More information is below. For each challenge, if you want to work out how many steps it involves there is a site to help you here: http://climb.dplhome.org.
If you can help support our cause and spread the word we would be very grateful.
