Welcome to St Peter's
Church of England Aided School
LONDON MARATHON Challenge 2015
Good Luck today in the London Marathon!!
When Rachel Hutchinson was appointed as the new headteacher at St Peter’s Church of England Aided School, she wanted to challenge herself with an ambitious goal to demonstrate to all the students at St Peter’s that attitude, commitment, and a passion for learning and hard work is what really matters in life. I’m not a runner and therefore, this is an ‘aspirational goal’. I want the St Peter’s students to see we are all on a learning journey and nothing comes without hard work and dedication and so the LONDON MARATHON CHALLENGE commenced.
St Peter’s was successful in securing 25 places with a national charity Whizz Kidz. Whizz-Kidz sets disabled children free to reach their true potential and live their lives to the full. Whizz Kidz provide mobility equipment to give kids the chance to be independent.
‘It’s been a fantastic charity for the school to focus on this year, giving our students the opportunity to reflect on those less fortunate than themselves. We aim to raise over £40,000 between the 25 runners. Students at St Peter’s have been incredible in coordinating their own fund raising events and receiving kind donations from local companies such as Maunder Butchers’.
We all wish the runners the very best of luck as they hit the London Streets on Sunday 26 April 2015 with 35,000 other runners!
Please continue to support the team and help them achieve their target amount by going online to just giving page https://www.justgiving.com/rachelhutchinson07/ or forwarding a cheque made payable to Whizz Kidz and posting it to St Peter’s Church of England Aided School who will ensure it is forwarded to the charity.
