Gad Hill School's youngest pupils take on 'bounceathon' challenge for NSPCC
A children’s charity has been given a boost by a school at Higham.
The youngest children at Gad’s Hill School have taken part in a non-stop ‘bounceathon’ to support a national campaign to help raise money for the NSPCC.
Every child from nursey to Year Six was sponsored by friends and family to take a turn on a bouncy castle throughout the entire school day as part of a workout challenge set by the charity.
The NSPCC’s mascot ‘Buddy’ was guest of honour as at a special assembly to make sure the children learned the skills they need to protect themselves from harm and danger before challenging them to take part in the sporting fundraiser.
Junior school head teacher Fiona Fisher said: “All our 3-11 years old pupils found out how to keep safe and help other children less fortunate so we wanted an activity that they could all join in with.
“Bouncing is fun and sporty and was a great way to help such a worthwhile cause.”
