Just before half-term, pupils across the Prep school, paid tribute to Captain Sir Tom Moore by taking on their own 100 Challenge.
Pupils braved snow and sub-zero conditions to pay tribute to Captain Sir Tom Moore. The plucky youngsters, some as young as 7, took part in ‘Cundall’s 100 Challenge.’ Sports staff at school asked 100 pupils to come up with an activity that they could perform 100 times.
The activities pupils completed varied from 100 forwards rolls, kakas, laps of the garden, jogs up and down the stairs, jumps on a trampoline, press-ups, and star jumps to name a few. At school, critical worker pupils ran 100 laps of the school grounds in teams of five.
Director of Sport, John Liley, said: “It is not very often that we can truly say that someone has truly captured the hearts of a nation. Captain Tom did just that. The Cundall 100 Challenge is a little nod to a proud Yorkshireman and a way for our pupils to pay tribute to such an inspirational man.”
John added: “Well done to our pupils who took part in the challenge. Our pupils certainly tried to emulate the resilience shown by Captain Tom in their activities and from us all, a big thank you to Captain Tom for the inspiration.”
