School staff prove they’re high achiev­ers

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

AN IN­TREPID group of staff from Nene Park Academy, who suc­cess­fully scaled the UK’S three high­est moun­tains, have been pre­sented with this week’s Pride In Peter­bor­ough front page.

The staff from the school in Or­ton Longueville com­pleted The Three Peaks Chal­lenge to raise funds to help pupils to take part in the Duke of Ed­in­burgh Award pro­gramme.

The chal­lenge in­volved climb­ing the three high­est peaks in Eng­land, Wales and Scot­land - Scafell Pike (978m), Snow­don (1,085m) and Ben Ne­vis (1,344m) - in 24 hours. The team, Ab­bie Mann, Amy Mel­lor, Steve Howard and An­thony Part­ing­ton, were sup­ported by Ivan Reed and Ash­ley Scott.

They faced snow and arc­tic con­di­tions dur­ing the chal­lenge.
