Team story

[p][b]On 13th July, the hottest day of the year and after an arduous journey across the Lake District, 55 children set out to climb Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England. And, you know what, they ALL DID IT!![/b][/p][lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden;"[gt][b]They did it![/b][lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden;"[gt][b]On 14th July, 27 Vineyard children, aged 7 to 11 years old, climbed Snowdon! [/b][lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden;"[gt][b]Snowdon is the highest mountain in the United Kingdom (outside of Scotland) at 1,085m and is a big achievement for anyone – adult or child. The weather was kinder than it could have been, but still lent us all the opportunity to try out our waterproof trousers (10 minutes into our climb) and wooly hats (the summit was very cold!) Fleetingly, we did get views from the top as the clouds skimmed across the sky below us.[/b][lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden;"[gt][b]The Snowdon Kids are Joe Campbell, Alyeska & Yaye Cook, Eliot Crutchfield, Jamie Cummins, Danny, Rosa & Lily Dobson, Dixie Duder, Nico & Sonia Eckstein, Oliver Fetherston-Dilke, Rufus Gillespie, Claire Gooch, Ben Hillman, Holly Hugh-Jones, Amelia Huntington, Hannah Kent, Olivia Locke, Emily Mather, Alice O'Neill, Gwilym Owen, Joe, Sam & Louis Schomberg, Tiia & Sami Williams.[/b][lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden;"[gt][b]Mr. Rosewell was a very welcome addition to our walking team.  He said it was tougher than he had thought it would be, but that he felt a great sense of achievement. So did we all![/b][lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden;"[gt][b]The children have decided that they would like to use their mighty effort in climbing Snowdon to raise money for others.  They decided that they would like to support our school, The Vineyard, and World Wildlife Fund (WWF). All donations will go to the Friends of the Vineyard and then 50% of the total will be passed onto the WWF.[/b][lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden;"[gt][b]For more information and photos please visit our Facebook page - www.facebook.com/VineyardTriplePeakers.
