The secondary school students completed the 6km on Thursday by walking from the school gates to Fitzgerald Park, where they completed two laps in order to reach their goal. To adhere to Covid-19 restrictions, students sported blue and pink ribbons to maintain the 2m social-distancing rule while completing the walk.
With new restrictions, outings as a year group have become uncommon for the students. However, by maintaining their traditions there was a refreshing sense of ‘normality’ for the students.
Like many charities, the Schools and Health Foundation have missed out on numerous opportunities to raise money this year.
