St Andrew’s Marathon 2016

The eleventh St. Andrew’s Annual Marathon, took place last Saturday and was wonderful!

The weather was kind to us when 169 current pupils (and numerous past pupils) ran the mile-long course, cheered each other on and were encouraged by many more from the sidelines.  The children were truly inspirational in the way that they supported each other and lived the Values.

I was particularly proud this year to have actually earned my marathon medal and to sit with the other champions!

Many, many thanks to everyone who made the day so special…

  • The children – just because they are.
  • The parents, for supporting their wonderful children.
  • John’s – for mopping us up
  • The efficient marshals who kept us safe and
  • The PTA who provided us with delicious barbecue food and snacks – and made £160 approx. profit – JJJ

I could go on and on……….but finally, and especially – Michele Davies (Past parent, Governor  and sports ambassador extraordinaire) who, along with husband Owen, received flowers and wine from the school, as a thank you for all their hard work and immense generosity in organising and financing such a wonderful event.

Again, the morning really was a living example of our St. Andrew’s family at its best and made me hugely proud.   Now we just need the sponsor money to be collected… which will be used to develop our Outside Play area…….. So over to you!
