One Week To Go:
Andy’s Message To Pupils
So on Saturday I re-sit my exam.
Last year I failed the test so this time I’ve changed
my revision – done it different
because I want to get a different result.
I’ve done my homework and I’ve learned my lessons –
Something big is about to happen - it’s OK to be nervous – it’s OK to be excited, and I’m
both right now. Packing my kit, watching the weather forecast, and trying to relax and
sleep as well as I can.
The calm before the storm…
Many of you are partway into your 268 mile challenge, some of you are nearly finished
and some of you – like me - are about to start.
There are now 13 schools and nearly 1600 pupils taking part in this Cracking The Spine
challenge and raising money for Sport Relief: That’s incredible and YOU are part of it.
My school visits have been very very special, and while it is impossible for me to get to
know every one of you, I have been inspired by your own commitment, your stories and
your achievements. I will be packing that feeling in my rucksack to use when I need a
boost and something extra to smile about.
I hope you enjoy following the progress of the runners on-line next week and using the
race in some of your lessons.
I’ll be back to see you before Sport Relief Day.
As for next week? I commit to doing my best.
Will that be good enough to pass the test this time? The only way to find out is to have
the courage to start…
