Congratulations to all our Santa Dash runners; we really did go the extra mile in today’s fun run! With the weather resulting in 2 previous attempts being re-arranged, today’s conditions were perfect! Pupils throughout the school lined up across the playground and field in anticipation of the start whistle. Participants walked or ran the course, many dressed in Santa Suits, Santa Beards or Santa Hats! The atmosphere was magical!
The 30-minute event resulted in Pinewood pupils dashing 1022 laps, raising a whopping £1,391.62 for Pinewood’s PTFA. Amazon vouchers were awarded as class prizes for:
|Class Cox||Class with the most laps – short course|
|Castellon||Class with the most laps – long course|
|Class Keller||Class with the most sponsorship|
|Class Beckham (Mrs Klein)||Best Santa Suit|
|Class Grey Thompson (Zoe)||Best Santa Hat|
|Class Beckham (George)||Best Santa Beard|
|Class Keller||Best Medal Design (for December 2023)|
|Class Ali (Jay & James)||Best effort|
A big “Thank You” to you – the PTFA – parents, families and staff. And, of course, to all our pupils. It was lovely to see so many receiving certificates and medals for their participation in such a fabulous event.
Save the Date: The next Santa Dash is on: Friday 1st December 2023.
