The Friends of St Wystans work in collaboration with members of staff and the Schools Governing Body with the aim of raising money for projects to be carried out for the School. All of these projects are aimed at enhancing the learning experience of the children.

As a result of the ongoing pandemic, the normal fundraising that has been so successful in previous years has unfortunately not been possible and the Friends of St Wystans, along with the Governing Body want to do all that they can to continue to raise much needed funds, albeit in a different manner which works around the current Covid obstacles.

Due to the difficulties in raising money and in particular holding events such as the nativity, school disco, Christmas fayre etc. and after much discussion with the Friends and wider St Wystans community we have decided to create a 'St Wystan's to Santa' Challenge over the Christmas Holidays. Funds collected from this challenge will solely be used for special projects, such as IT renewal.

We have focused on a Christmas theme as a result of the School not being able to celebrate in the usual festive ways. It was decided, that as a School Community we aim to cover the distance from St Wystan's to the North Pole - a total of 2,710 Miles!

This challenge aims to get the whole school to work together and reach their respective targets. We have split the target distance depending on year groups, and each individual target are as follows:

KG - 5 miles Form 1 - 10 miles

Form 2 - 15 miles Form 3 - 20 miles

Form 4 - 30 miles Form 5 - 35 miles

Form 6 - 50 miles

With each staff member has being asked to reach 100 miles each.

This may seem far, but the aim of this is to challenge each member of the School community and take them out of their comfort zone.
