In March 2014, all the
children at Harefield Primary School ran, or helped others run one mile as part
of a team. This was to raise money for those all over the world who need it and
make a real difference to peoples’ lives. School raised lots of money for this
great cause. Well done to all that took part!
This year we plan to hold
a skipathon in order to raise money for The British Heart Foundation.
At the end of the year,
the children were invited to a special Sports Assembly. Children were nominated
against the Olympic values and the staff found it difficult to choose just one
winner in each category because there were so many nominations. Well done to all
the children who received awards for their efforts and were presented with
their medals by Mrs. Capper.
Potential winners will be
nominated again this summer term. Make sure you are showing the Olympic values.
Will you be the next winner?
