Stormont School in Potters Bar took part in the Captain Tom 100 Challenge on the 30th April.

The event provided a great opportunity to get outside onto the school field to have fun and raise funds for a local charity, The Hart and Parker Trust.

The Trust helps families with food bank parcels, baby equipment, furniture and anything that helps the daily life of an individual or a family.

Hart and Parker do tremendous work in the community and one that is supported every year by Stormont School.

Thankfully the weather was kind and everything planned was completed.

Prep girls in their Year 5 and 6 bubble were first to participate and the Year 3 and 4 bubble followed to complete a course laid out by Mrs Portsmouth, Head of PE.

The field and been prepared, lines had been drawn and equipment put in place; there were repetitions of burpees, running between poles, mini hurdles, sprints and much more.

Even some of the teachers and teaching assistants joined in.

After lunch the Pre-Prep children did their bit for the fundraising which included running, skipping, balancing and throwing – great fun was had by all.

The total raised so far is in excess of £700 and all the girls and staff were proud to have been part of the Captain Tom 100 Challenge.

Miss Alexis Sobell, Deputy Head, who put the event together said: "As a new member of staff at Stormont School, I am so pleased that everyone enjoyed this special day.

"I would like to thank everyone who supported with their time or donating money."
