Polar children celebrate putting up tent

Polar children celebrate putting up tent

Abbotts Ann Primary School is a tiny village school with just over 100 pupils. We had an amazing amount of fun during their North Pole Day in February. Part of the day involved a sponsored walk, where all the children, and many of the staff spent an hour walking (but mainly running) round set routes in the spacious school grounds. You can see how much everyone enjoyed themselves in this short video. My favourite quote of the day from one of the younger children (my role model!) was “What’s the point in running? It just tires you out!”

The families and friends of the children were extremely generous and £515.31 was raised for the local charity, The Jamie G Sporting Trust. Putting the total raised through Arctic-Mummy to just under £7000.00!

I am really looking forward to going back to Abbotts Ann Primary School in the summer term to share all the experiences of my Arctic adventures with these lively, sociable children, who are a pleasure to work with.
