SEVENTEEN pupils from The Froebelian School, Horsforth, have raised £3,111 for WaterAid by completing The Yorkshire Three Peaks - walking Ingleborough, Whernside and Penyghent over three days – a total of 24 miles.

The ten and 11-year-olds in Form IV (Year 6) stayed in basic accommodation in Ingleton during the challenge where they were responsible for a range of domestic duties, including cleaning, washing up and helping with the preparation of food.

Headteacher, Mrs Coulson said: “What these children have achieved in such arduous weather conditions is nothing but incredible. They have raised a school record breaking amount of money for our chosen charity this year and I can only thank each and every member of The Froebelian Family for their support and kindness.”

WaterAid is a charity very close to Deputy Head, Mrs Giles’ heart, having previously worked in a country without running water. It is an international not-for-profit, determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation.
