Let's Bounce Fund Raiser for Comic Relief

Phoenix St Peter Academy in Lowestoft hosted a Red Nose Day event with the theme 'Let's Bounce.'

The day, celebrated with jumping, hopping, skipping, and bouncing activities involving fitness balls, trampettes, pogo-sticks, hula-hoops, and skipping ropes, was enjoyed by the whole school.

Carers and families were invited to join in with the fun and cheer on the pupils during the activities that were designed to highlight active and healthy lifestyles.

Nathan Russell, the sports and forest school lead, said: "The children really enjoy all of the varied sports which we offer at Phoenix, along with the fantastic tournaments which they participate in, and they thought it would be fun to have a whole school fundraiser for Comic Relief, focused around active and healthy lifestyles."

Mrs Freeman, the deputy headteacher, said: "We have been supported by East Suffolk Council and Community Partnership who provided our key stage 2 children with their 'Healthy Habits' booklet which they used to capture the many ways in which our children keep active and healthy."

The pupils raised more than £110 for Comic Relief, and are already planning a bigger 2025 fundraiser.
