The Lights Go Off for Sport Relief at NPS
Thank you for all the kind donations for Sport Relief on Friday. Nearly eight hundred pounds was raised as the pupils and teachers undertook a sporting marathon in the darkness!
‘Glowercise’ was new to the pupils, who thoroughly enjoyed dancing to some brilliant tunes. They waved their glow sticks with style and rhythm, whilst older pupils on stage at the front guided younger pupils brilliantly. Classes took turns throughout the day, coming together for a grand finale in the darkness, pierced only by hundreds of dancing multi-coloured wands. The pupils loved the event, knowing it was for a good cause. Words they used to describe it were ‘fun’, ‘awesome’, ‘difficult but worth it’, ‘energy stealing’. Too true!
Excellent dancing everyone and we look forward to the next Sport Relief event with much anticipation.
