STUDENTS and staff at the Sir Robert Woodard Academy bravely put their bodies on the line to raise money for Sport Relief.
On Thursday evening, staff and students went the extra mile by running laps around the sports field, marshalled by prefects and chapter charity representatives.
“They were very encouraging – especially to teachers who slogged it around the field and certainly came nowhere near the four-minute mile, let alone more recent records,” said Lynn Brown, the academy’s senior administrator.
On Friday lunchtime, students paid a donation to watch teachers compete against each other in a tug of war tournament.
Students cheered on their teachers but could not help laughing when several fell to the ground.
The events are expected to raise around £250.
