Pimlico celebrates Sports Relief 2018
Female staff and students from Pimlico Academy went head to head in a nail-biting netball match yesterday, kicking off a series of sporting activities to celebrate, and raise money for, Sport Relief 2018.
Despite the frosty weather, Pimlico staff and students had a spring in their step, as they took each other on in an exhilirating netball match.
Pimlico will be upping its game with more activities to follow later on this week, including a staff v student football match, and a staff v student basketball match. Whether you are a staff member or a student, participants must pay £5 to enter, to help raise vital funds for Sports Relief 2018.
Pimlico Academy hopes that the activities will help to encourage fundraising and care towards others, as well as promoting fitness and a healthy lifestyle. It also serves as a nice treat to both staff and students, who are coming towards the end of what has been a challenging term for many.
Pimlico Academy is part of Future Academies, which encourages fundraising and sporting activities as part of its Raising Aspirations programme, designed to enrich the curriculum.
The Sports Relief fundraising activities were organised by the PE department. To find out more about the PE curriculum, and sports timetable, see our curriculum page.
