On Thursday, all the children in Nursery, Pre-Prep and The Junior School took part in The TCS Schools Mini Marathon.

This year, schools have been set the task across the UK to achieve a Guinness World Record. Children are challenged to run, jog, walk or wheel one mile in their school. The New Beacon had 173 children contribute towards this goal.

If the challenge is successful, we will receive a certificate from Guinness World Records.

Many thanks to Mrs Ching for helping, Mrs Alteirac and Mrs Harris for running, and all the teachers and TA’s for helping to make the event run so smoothly.

Of course, a special thanks goes to the children for taking part and ALL completing the mile!

Mr Young
