St Peter's Swimathon is a swimming success
On Sunday, we hosted a hugely successful Swimathon at Exmouth Leisure Centre with the aim to raise fund for our fantastic school pool. A big thank you to the wonderful Ruth for all the time and energy she put into getting the Swimathon going. Thanks to Jane Hushon too for co-ordinating the markers and her all round support. Thanks to Marcus Allen too for all his microphone skills!
We had a full house, with 12 teams and over 50 swimmers participating, each hoping to complete the most laps within one hour. Amongst the keen swimmers there were pupils, teachers and parents, as well as former students. The atmosphere was lively and supportive. In the end, it really didn’t matter which team swam the furthest, as every participant was rightly proud of their achievements.
If you haven’t had a chance to sponsor the swimmers yet, never fear, there’s still time – follow the link below and give as much or as little as you can.
Did you know it costs our school around £15,000 a year to run? Every year we risk running at a deficit, as the donations and funds are not always enough.
Donate by Friday to ensure your money makes it into our final total.
You can do this either by giving the cash directly to the school or office or by visiting our My Donate page here:
