Prep School’s Sport Relief Challenge

25 March 2014

On Friday 21 March, to raise money for Sport Relief, pupils and staff from Windermere Preparatory School took up the challenge to climb the equivalent of Mount Everest.  Their ‘Everest’ was Orrest Head, which lies behind the School.

The pupils in Year 4 cleverly calculated the route: 120 pupils and staff, walking 8 different routes from WPS to Orrest Head summit, climbed 108m each. This meant that collectively the group climbed 12,960m which is higher than Mount Everest, which stands at 8,848m.

The School’s Adventure motto is ‘from Ellery to Everest’.  Adventure plays a big part in the curriculum and extra-curricular activities at WPS. Each room within the School is named after an adventure hero – one is named after Tenzing Norgay.

So far, the pupils have raised £450 for Sport Relief.
