Summer sports club raises money for charity

August 29, 2012 Leave a comment

Springfields holiday sports club, run by Marvin Brown has been a huge success this summer. Local children have been given the opportunity to attend jam packed sporting days at the Academy. Staff have helped to make the days successful offering varieties of sports for the children to try. From football to dodgeball, badminton to curling the days have been great fun and offered sports that the children may not have tried before. The proceeds of the sports days are being donated to BrAMS (multiple sclerosis research)!! And we have raised a huge £682 pounds for this charity.


More sporting days will be held in October so check back for updated posts.
Thank you for your donations!

Sport Relief

Springfields run the mile for Sport Relief 2012.

All students took part in a mile run for Sport relief. Teams took off from outside the gym and did 4 laps around the school site.

We also held a cake making competition in which units designed a cake using the Olympics as a theme.

Mr Williams did the tasting test along with Mr Lynch judging the overall design of the cake.

Well done to everyone that took part and for Ridgeway who won the cake competition.

We raised  a total of £220, which also included the contribution Miss Hull made for her 5k run in aid of Sport Relief.
