K a Day Challenge
The entire school took part in a K a Day challenge for a period of 6 weeks in September/October. An increased level of fitness was observed, with everyone setting themselves personal challenges walking, jogging & running. We are looking forward to building on this again and setting future goals. Well done to all!
