Students take part in sponsored 5km run
Year 7 students at Debden Park High School, Loughton, took part in a sponsored 5km run (Thursday, June 16) to raise money for Skillforce and Cancer Research.
The event was a part of the Skillforce programme that 12 students are taking part in.
The programme involves developing lifelong skills to aid them through various challenges of life. Activities have included a BMX workshop, First Aid course and navigation course along with organising the 5km run.
KS3 Progress Co-ordinator Merys Rees said: "The students were dedicated, enthusiastic and motivated during the run and their passion towards both causes were clearly seen.
"It was fantastic to see every Year 7 student taking part, working together and celebrating their success as a year group."
Each student received a medal and certificate.
The final amount raised will be known later this week.
