Captain Tom 100 Challenge

Oldbury Wells students completed the Captain Tom 100 challenge over the bank holiday weekend to spread a message of hope and resilience.

One year on from the late Captain Sir Tom Moore starting the 100 laps of his garden to raise money for the NHS, the Captain Tom Foundation launched a challenge for people and schools to do in his memory, to spread a message of hope and resilience and to involve the number 100. We set the task for students to take part in over the May Bank Holiday weekend - what would have been Captain Tom's 101st birthday weekend. 

We've been really impressed to see some very creative responses to the challenge, and you can view a video below to see what some of our students did. 

We managed to raise £81 for the Captain Tom Foundation who support many great causes. 

Some activities from our students included: 

  • 100 jumps of a skipping rope
  • 100 star jumps
  • 100 runs up and down the stairs
  • 100 pieces of lego
  • 100 second rope crawl
  • 100 minute beach walk
  • 100 tennis ball bounces
  • 100 arrows shot
  • 100 crunches

Well done to all who got involved, and in the words of Captain Sir Tom Moore: "Tomorrow will be a good day"
