Dozens of daredevil pupils from Cundall provided some high-octane entertainment as the annual Go-Kart Race returned following a forced hiatus due to covid-19.
The break did not dampen spirits with the homemade Go-Karts providing speed, theatre and some spectacular but safe crashes at Cundall Manor School last Friday (28 May). This year saw Noah claim the top spot on the podium following a morning of fun and heart-stoppingly mad-cap racing.
The event has been held for well over a decade and this year saw a range of innovative entries from its pupils including a modified rocking horse to several smoke expelling entries.
Head, Amanda Kirby, said: “The race is part of the school’s history. We always look forward to the event and it is a great way to bring a busy half-term to a close and have some fun.”
Pupils and staff cheered on the competitors as they descended the hill with a varying degree of success.
Business Manager, Paul Swalwell, added: “The event always attracts some fabulous designs, and this year was no exception. Many of our pupils and their parents have been working on this for two years and although it was such a shame to have to postpone last year’s race, it is wonderful to see their hard work pay off with such a fun event.”
After the fun of the race, pupils embarked on another school tradition, the annual charity walk to raise funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. To date the event has raised a total of over £1,250 with gift-aid.
Paul added: “A huge thank to all our pupils and parents who helped make the day so entertaining and special and a special thank you to everyone who has helped raise funds for such a wonderful charity.”
