Sport Relief 2014, Year 9

This year, Sport Relief runs from Friday 21st – Sunday 23rd of March, so the Year 9’s planned their charity week from the 17th Monday – 21st Friday March.

The year thought up some fantastic ideas for fundraising, fully engaging with the sports themed charity. Some of the events that took place were a raffle, and a sports related news quiz which Mr Nash’s Form of year 10’s won, with their sports motto ‘Never Fear, Webber is Here’. The dodgeball tournament between years 3-6 was won by the boys.




The tournament between Years 7-9 was won by Year 8’s, and the final tournament between Years 10-13 was taken by the team mostly made up of Year 11’s, what happened Sixth Form!?

A couple of team players from the Year 11 group (as everyone else was too camera shy!)

Years 3-6 also battled it out on the playing field with a game of tug of war, both sides put up a fierce fight with arms of steel; however, the girls thrashed the boys in the end! Well done ladies!

The atmosphere was intense

Girl Power left the boys crushed

During PE lessons each year participated in running laps, each students (as well as staff’s) distance in metres were added together and calculated into miles, over-all the Webber Independent ran a whopping 305,040 metres, that’s 190 miles for Sports Relief! Well done! Each year also had a winner who ran the longest distance:

Congratulations to all the winners, but equally a huge thank you to everyone for taking part and contributing to the Sports Relief Week!

After many form time meetings, much brainstorming and planning, the Year 9’s (with the guidance of Sixth Form) managed to raise a well earned £270.35! Congratulations to the year group's success!
