Children at Alne Primary School have been completing fundraising challenges during the latest national lockdown organised by the PTA, Friends of Alne School. Children have been competing in two teams: to climb the height of Everest using their stairs or walk to Alne School in Sweden. The challenges have been hugely successful with more than £5000 being raised for the school and money still coming in.
Miss Dawson, headteacher said “The support of the families and friends at this difficult time has been phenomenal. The money raised is being used to improve our IT equipment, in particular to buy additional laptops which are vital for learning at the moment”
Special recognition is going to Oscar in Year 2 who was inspired to climb Pen-y-ghent initially. He enjoyed it so much he went on to achieve summiting all 3 Yorkshire Peaks, succeeding with Whernside in the snow.
