Children at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Banbury have raised more than £865 for the NSPCC after doing a fundraising day for the charity.
Following an assembly given to the children about keeping themselves safe, they committed to a PE-based sponsored activity to raise funds. Children in both Key Stage One and Two ran, jumped and stepped their way to their 10,000 step target and the handover was made at an assembly last Friday.
Clare Smith, headteacher, said: “Children in Key Stage One particularly enjoyed covering their distance by taking different steps – baby steps, giant steps and some families also carried on the fundraising outside of school.”
