A Tough Climb Ahead For Staff
A team of staff led by Vice Principal Tony Segalini will be pulling on their backpacks this Friday (April 30th) and heading off to Yorkshire to tackle the famous three peaks challenge.
The challenge covers 24 miles over rough terrain and the three peaks of Pen-y-Ghent, Ingleborough, and Whernside and the CBA team are hoping to do the distance in a time of around 12 hours.
The gruelling course covers more than 600 miles of hills, so the team have made sure they have been putting in the practice before they take on the hike.
After an overnight camp on Friday night they will begin their challenge at 6am on Saturday morning (May 1st).
The charity that will benefit this year is Help The Heroes.
Mr Segalini said: "Last year was our first Three Peaks Challenge and we pledged to make it an annual event.
"This year we have a bigger team and we are hoping to raise even more money than last year."
The staff team is made up of: David Joseph, Amy Harris ( and her husband); Phil Woolley, James Aston, Alex Franklin (PCSO), Dan Arnold, John Atkinson, Alain Stubbs, new Active teacher Natasha Dunstone and Sarah Ashby who will form the support crew along with Mr Segalini's wife.
