What an exciting second day of term at Godolphin as their whole school community join together.
Dressed in smart attire, jackets and their Godolphin boaters, over 450 students, from Prep to Sixth Form, departed from school at 9am and headed to St Thomas’ Church, Salisbury. As tradition dictates, the students and staff joined together for their annual service to celebrate the start of the new academic year.
When back at school, after a quick change of clothes, the girls met on Pitch One for a quick warm up and at 11am the whole school headed off on their Whole School Community Walk. After a staggered departure, with First Years and Upper Sixth leading the way, the 6km route will take them through Laverstock towards the Clarendon Estate. Teacher Mr David Miller will lead his elite running group!
Head of Charities Stella Jones says “This is a really special start to our school year and we are delighted to be able to join together in this way. The community walk has become a bi-annual tradition for our school and we are delighted to be supporting Wiltshire Air Ambulance and Mental Health Foundation this year.
Girls have donated their own money and collectively they have reached over £800 so far. If you could help them reach their target of £1,00 and would like to donate to these excellent causes, please follow this link"
Kenresa Stratford, Events Co-ordinator at Wiltshire Air Ambulance, says “ We really appreciate the support of Godolphin and thank them for choosing us as their charity. We hope the sun shines and wish them the best of luck.”
