Today the College is buzzing with one hundred and twenty-six students taking part in 12 hours of continuous sport. Students will be improving their sports skills, team building and working on their physical strengths whilst having fun. The main aim of the day is to raise money for the Malcolm Whales Foundation.
Damien Whales founded the charity in 2009 in memory of his father. Malcolm lost his fight with bowel cancer at the age of 55 and the charity fundraises to help beat cancer and to positively affect people who have been affected by cancer.
The response and sign up rate from students has been amazing with take up at WVC being larger than any other school in the area. The twelve hours kicked off at 7am this morning with very enthusiastic students and staff taking part in basketball, dodgeball, trampolining, table tennis and badminton, students also had access to the fitness suite.
Despite a huge amount of planning, the poor weather threw a spanner into the works and outdoor sports of football, netball, tennis, Danish long ball, rounders, ultimate Frisbee and rugby were cancelled for a large part of the day. With events going on until 7pm, students have Boxercise, Gymnastics, fitness fun and dance mats to look forward to.
A big thank you to our PE Department for organising and staging this event that will raise over £2000 for the Foundation.
