Over the past 8 – 9 months over 200 year 6 students in Torbay (and even Bovey Tracey, Newton Abbot and Exmouth) have been working hard achieving some great successes towards their 2016 / 2017 Torbay Civic Award.
There has been plenty off activity going on and at the same time supporting some great causes that not only makes a difference to others, but to also the students who have worked hard raising vital funds to such causes and creating awareness of what there supporting.
Here is a quick recap on just a few of the highlights from Bovey Tracey, Collaton St Mary, Torre and St Marychurch Primary Schools:
Bovey Tracey – Exmoor Challenge
Saturday 29th April four Bovey Tracey Year 6 students; Amelia Burgess, Niamh Pratt Smith, Ella Smith and Hannah Brodbelt completed a 16 mile walk across Exmoor raising £1135.50 for the Southwest Children’s hospice.
Collaton St Mary – Jenny Sinclair Sponsored Cycle for SCBU Torbay
Jenny Sinclair from Collaton St Mary Primary School in Paignton has raised over £200 for the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) in Torbay Hospital by completing a 15 lap (just under 15 miles) cycle marathon at Torbay Velopark in Paignton.
Torre – Helping the Homeless Shelter
For five Saturdays, fourteen pupils from Torre C of E Academy participated in the homeless shelter at Central Church. We set up a comfortable and warm place for the homeless to spend the night. Setting up was fun: making beds, setting the table for dinner and laying out our donations of hats, gloves and socks.
St Marychurch – Helping Babbacombe Bloomers
Two year six students “Ellen and Oscar” from St Marychurch Primary School gave a helping hand to Babbacombe Bloomers in St Marychurch precinct which forms part of their Torbay Civic Award achievement.
