Prep School pupils and staff are taking a leap for ILEAP – the South Warwickshire charity that promotes independence and friendships for disabled people aged 4 years and over through inclusive leisure activities like clubs, youth groups and holidays.
A special assembly was held to launch ILEAP as the Prep School charity – and it couldn’t be more appropriate as 2012 is a leap year!
Pupils and staff are making pledges to take a “leap into the unknown” and do something they have never done before to raise money for the charity. This can be anything from eating a new vegetable to riding a bike without stabilisers. It doesn’t matter how big or small the challenge is.
Foundation 1 and Reception teacher Miss Tilley demonstrated what she will be doing when she makes a tandem parachute jump later in the year while Year 3 teacher Mrs Harrold talked about coming into school one day dressed in pyjamas.
Other members of staff have already pledged to do a variety of things including riding a horse, learning to play the piano, cycling 20 miles to work and salsa dancing.
There are several activities already planned in school including a cake sale and pyjama day.
