The 10- and 11-year-olds in Form IV (Year 6) took on The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge walking Ingleborough, Whernside and Penyghent over three days – a total of 24 miles, uphill and down dale.
During the challenge, the children stayed in basic accommodation in Ingleton, where they were responsible for a range of domestic duties, including cleaning, washing up and helping with the preparation of food.
Headteacher, Mrs Coulson said: “What these children have achieved in such arduous weather conditions is nothing but incredible. They have raised a school record breaking amount of money for our chosen charity this year and I can only thank each and every member of The Froebelian Family for their support and kindness.”
In the words of 10-year-old Dhruv: “It was really tough at the start but got easier the more we challenged ourselves. It felt really good completing all three peaks!”
WaterAid is a charity very close to Deputy Head, Mrs Giles’ heart, having previously worked in a country without running water.
It is an international not-for-profit, determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation. Only by tackling these three essentials in ways that last, can people change their lives for good.
