The staff well-being committee at Dane Court Grammar School has launched a challenge for all Dane Court staff to help our physical and mental well being whilst bringing everyone together to reach a collective goal and with the added bonus of raising money for charity. Members of staff will travel a virtual route around Europe visiting each of the places that gave our school houses their names.
The route is 5492 miles and we have 2 months to complete it. Everyone on the staff team can contribute their actual miles travelled under their own steam. For example, walking the dog, inside on a treadmill or exercise bike, outside running, walking or cycling, horse riding and swimming - literally any kind of physical activity that can be measured in miles.
The staff well-being team are maintaining a record of accumulated activity and will be keeping everyone up to date with the progress ‘around Europe’ We would like to raise at least £500 for Pilgrims
Hospices so please follow the link to donate:
