On Wednesday 23rd June five children from school (and one former pupil) competed amongst 250 competitors in a one mile race held in Dulwich Park. Angus Harrington romped home easily in 4th place - beating his elder brother, Bertie. Just behind him, in 6.5mins was Catriona McSorley who was the winning girl overall. Hot on her heels was James Peduzzi, Emma Peduzzi and then Esther Keegan who all managed a mile in under 8 mins - a BRILLIANT achievement!

Not wanting to be outdone, Miss Arnott then went on to compete in the adults 5km race (just over 3 miles) finishing in 23 minutes! She was part of the winning ladies team.

A good evening for St. Christopher's The Hall!

A weight off Sir's chest Print E-mail

Congratulations to our own 'Mr Universe' who completed his weight-lifting challenge on Wednesday for our named charity for the year, The Eyeless Trust. In under two hours, Sir, accompanied by much cheering from enthusiastic spectators (pupils, staff and some parents) lifted 10.000kg in a series of back-breaking lifts. To put it in perspective, it was the combined weight of approximately six small cars! It caused so much interest that The Bromley Times followed the story (please see the link below for further details) and even the building firm, who will be soon getting to work on the new Reception block, sponsored him. Needless to say, the pupils are all very proud of Sir. We are still accepting any further sponsor money, should you wish to contribute as we are getting close to our £10 000 target, although he has refused to auction off his weight-lifting kit......as yet!
