Waiting for Video...

STUDENTS at a school in Angmering hobbled their way around a field for Sport Relief when they took part in a three-legged fun run.

Youngsters at The Angmering High School, in Station Road, were taught the value of team work when they were tied together for the charity race.

All of the pupils completed six tiring laps around the field, with some leisurely jogging and the more competitive racers competing for first place.

In the end, it was year-nine pupils Connor Wheat, 14, and Morgan Day, 13, who came first, beating a number of older students in the process.

Morgan said: “We wanted to take part because it’s for charity. But it does feel good to beat the older students for first place.”

Students from different year groups were sponsored to take part in the run, with many dressing in a range of outfits, including retro school uniforms and onesies.

The school hopes the event will raise several hundred pounds for Sport Relief.

PE teacher Wendy Howell took part in the run with year-nine student Isabelle Rodda.

She said: “The run was held to raise funds for Sport Relief, but it’s also about students having a brilliant day in the sun. It’s about fun, team spirit and working together.

“They could choose to dress up as much as they wanted for their sponsorship, and some of them went to town with one-sies.”

Speaking about the race, she added: “It was hard work. It was good fun after eating my lunch and trying not to step on her all the way round. She was very good.”
