On the 1 and 14 July 2021, students from all year groups at South Wirral High School, Eastham, came together to run, jog, or walk five kilometres. The events took place in aid of Race for Life for Cancer Research, raising money for the cause.
All students took to the field with gusto, completing 12 laps of the school field. Some students also dressed up in pink and adorned glittered shirts, getting fully involved in Cancer Research’s trademark pink theme.
Congratulations goes to those runners who completed the event in a sub-25-minute time, and to all joggers and walkers who completed the race. Students and staff helped Mrs Barr organise and set up the event. They also assisted by being tail walkers, handing out medals, collecting money, and taking photographs, leading to a smoothly operated event.
Headteacher, Mr Goodwin said, “It has been so good to see the entire school community come together for this amazing community event after such a difficult year.”
Mr Goodwin – along with staff members Mr Russell, Mr Harrison, Mrs Dennis, Mr Simms, Mrs Barr, and Mrs Griffiths – also took to the field, with a special mention going to Mr Zaremba who completed the distance twice in one day.
The school raised an incredible grand total of £5,800 in aid of Cancer Research, showing the amazing and caring community that there is at South Wirral High School.
