Year 12 & 13 visit local countryside in charity walk

Last Friday 16th September the Sixth Form set off into the local countryside on a sponsored walk for the charity ‘War Child’ – the destination being a ‘pub lunch’ minus any bubbles!

Mr Noman led his and Mrs Smart’s/Mr Willis’ tutor groups to Sissinghurst to the venue of ‘The Milk House’ where some pizzas awaited them.  Unfortunatley for them, one pupil had decided to walk in Dr Martins, and even with blister patches had to walk the last stretch of the morning in his socks! Some trainers (delivered by Mr Khan) and delicious pizza in the Milkhouse pub, meant that he, and all the other pupils had a wonderful lunch break.

Mr Duff led Mr Khan and Mrs Healy’s groups to ‘The White Horse’ Cranbrook where a BBQ was cooking for them. Mr Manktelow led his and Mr Beckham’s group to the ‘Halfway house’ Brenchley where some burgers were awaiting. Staff and pupils had a great time in the lovely weather, and although Mr Duff was labelled ‘the grinch’ for banning all mobiles/music/boom boxes, it was lovely to see the Sixth Formers practice the art of conversation and enjoying each others company.   

We were walking for a reason and at the time of writing we have raised £1,035 for the charity ‘War Child’ which raises funds to help children who have been affected by warfare. If you haven’t donated, please use the link/QR code below to help raise further funds for a wonderful cause.
