Box Hill School staff and students climb a snowy Box Hill

Published on isbi School News dated Friday 10th of February 2012

The whole of the staff and student body at Box Hill School set out to climb Box Hill yesterday (Wednesday 8th February), in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the school trust. The route of the four mile sponsored walk had to be altered slightly at the last minute to account for icy paths, but after a lengthy (and steep!) climb, the summit was reached. Several students wore fancy dress to assist with their fundraising efforts, and a number of snowball fights were inevitably seen as the students relaxed before the descent back to school for hot chocolate and cookies.

Ben Rudd aged 11 seemed to speak for many of the pupils when he said 'This is the best day of my life!!'

The walk was raising money for a variety of charities chosen by the students; including the Rainbow Trust, Barnados and Happy Child International. The total raised from the walk will be available after half term.

In the evening, the students went on to celebrate by taking part in a charity variety show, which was a huge success and drew praise from all who attended. The charity show raised over £800 for Round Square Association projects.
