Virtual Journey to Madrid

Virtual Journey to Madrid

When we set off on the Active World Challenge four weeks ago, the prospect of travelling 749KM seemed quite daunting. We were aiming to complete a virtual journey to travel to ISZN – International School Zurich North in Switzerland, logging the distance travelled by pupils and staff every week.
But in true St. Mary’s style, we rose to the challenge and not only completed it within the time set, but carried on travelling! Having reached Switzerland by the end of the second week, we extended our journey and continued our travels until we reached Madrid, where the four Cognita Schools there gave us a warm welcome.
Families, and staff, have got involved in an incredible number of different activities, from walking, running and cycling, to swimming, rowing and gymnastics! Dancing, scootering and yoga were also included, and many of our pupils enjoyed walking to school each day, even when it poured with rain. In total we travelled an incredible 1,681Kilometres!
Everyone enjoyed getting involved, from our youngest pupils in Nursery, to our PE superstar Mr Downes on his bike, we all had a great time.
We have really enjoyed the challenge, and we hope that we will all have made a positive change for life, being more active, in more ways, more often.
