Sport Relief 2020
Headington supported Sport Relief in 2020 with a variety of different events and activities.
From Monday 9th to Friday 13th March and in light of the planned 2020 Olympics , the Sports Department challenged the School to walk/run/skip/swim/row/jog the length of Japan, all 1,869 miles.
Over 200 members of the school community contributed to the challenge named ‘HSO to Tokyo’ and together they managed to cover 1,522 miles of it!
Thank you and many congratulations to all those who contributed and a special thank you to all the rowers who contributed over 50 per cent of the distance in the challenge.
The School also conducted daily activities throughout the week organised by the Charities Committee, Charities Prefect and Sports Prefect.
Monday 9th saw a competitive Netball shootout in the quad where there were plenty of ‘hot shots’ from all ages.
The penalty shootout on Tuesday 10th had a brilliant turn out and a few highlights, one of which was when Holly took an incredible penalty which zoomed past Mr Cunningham, soaring into the top left-hand corner while he could only stand and watch.
A danceathon was held on Wednesday where staff and girls showed their dance endurance for charity.
Thursday’s quod activity was the ‘keepie uppie challenge’ where girls had the chance to show off their skills with a Hockey stick, Tennis racquet or Football. On Friday 13th March, girls and staff wore their favourite sports team shirts and turned up in the Main Hall at lunch time to take part in a diverse range of activities from wheelbarrow races to hula hooping to egg and spoon races.
A cake sale provided much needed snacks and refreshments while the spectators watched. Another highlight worth a mention was the staff egg and spoon race – the title was won convincingly by Mr Macken while Mr Lexton and Mrs Bowers were left to clean up their mess!
