Thursday 17th March was the day that Bexleyheath Academy came together to raise money for Sports Relief. The course was mapped out around the Academy by the PE department in the morning and our sports leaders were used throughout the day to delegate the runners around the 1 mile course. Each year group were given a period throughout the day to complete 1 lap of the Academy. The year 7’s and 8’s had their first taste of Sports Relief in the morning, followed by members of year 11 who wanted to take part through period 3. The afternoon session saw the year 9 and 10 students complete the course.

As the year group sat in the hall, the PE department asked for the students to separate themselves between the ‘Elite’ runners and the ‘Fun’ runners. The elite runners would start the race first and these would be the people who look for the best time and fight it out for the top 3 places. The fun runners would be the remaining members of the year group who would complete the 1 mile course at their own pace. The top 3 boys and girls from each year group received a medal for their excellent effort and each student from every year group got recommended for the PE ‘Endeavor’ award. This was given to the student who we thought went above and beyond and showed examples of courage and good spirit, regardless of their finishing position. We were very lucky to have the Mayor of Bexley attend the event and hand out medals to our runners.

The day was a massive success for the Academy as various members of staff joined in, with some dressed as nuns! The amount of money raised has not yet been finalised as we are still waiting for some sponsorship money to reach us. Some students have been fantastic and have raised over £100 each!

The year 7 pupils have been set a homework challenge to write a report of the day and these will be handed in after the Easter Holidays. The best report will feature on the Academy website!

Thank you to all pupils and staff who participated in the mile run and for all the money raised so far!
