The school took part in 3 walks, a short walk around the field, a medium walk around the park and a long range 13 km trek around the wilds of Wallington and beyond. A significant amount of money was raised and all the students enjoyed what was a long, tiring, but very worthwhile day.

WE Walking For Water
On the brilliant hot sunny day of Friday the 4th of May 2018 Students from Carew Academy and my peers from the Carew Academy 6th form and myself took part in a charitable walk called the WE walk to raise money for Water Aid to help children in Africa that don’t have healthy clean water, or water at all.
I and the other students from the 6th form went over to the main school where we and the students from the school got sorted into groups, these groups determined the lengths of each walk that the children wanted to do. There was the long walk, the middle walk and the small walk. However, we decided to go with the middle walk as we didn’t know how far or how long the long walk was.
As our group were finally let out down the side gate of the school, we went down the chosen path through Beddington Park and through the wooded area of the park. Until we reached the main road where we continued forwards, then we reached Wallington High Street. We arrived back at the school at 12:30 pm and rested for the rest of the day at the sixth form. We all raised about £15 to £80 separately, we are all waiting to know the total amount of money we have raised!
At last count we raised £1450. A fantastic effort, well done!
