Running the marathon this year for the Trust is Joy Davies from Park Lane Primary. Joy responded to our call for a GST runner in June, and has been training hard ever since.
This year is extra special as we have been able to secure a charity place for ourselves, meaning we are able to be represented whilst fundraising for our own GST Wide Horizons.
The GST Wide Horizons charitable fund raises money for a number of our projects throughout the Trust that support the promoting of our students’ achievements beyond the curriculum. One of these is the Sports and Arts Fund (SAF).
The Sports and Arts Fund (SAF) was set up in 2018 for all pupils in Years 3 to 13 in the Trust to apply for support in funding extracurricular interests which they have already pursued for some time. It is intended to pay for the better quality or higher standard specialist equipment that a student needs to take their skill to the next level.
To date, SAF has presented over 250 awards.
