The money was raised by a 'jump rope challenge' held on Friday, March 28.

Headteacher David Milligan said: “Leading up to the event, the children practiced their skipping at school and learned about the importance of a healthy lifestyle by combining exercise with a healthy diet.

“On the day itself, students from Graveney School plus parents of our children all came along to support the children in their various challenges.

“For a new school with only 63 children, the children raised an incredible £1,000.”
