Great North Baton Challenge – Northern Counties

Picture shows children from Northern Counties taking part in the conga

Pupils from Northern Counties School in Jesmond were the next recipients of The Children’s Foundation’s Education Baton. At the end of January all 52 pupils participated in a sponsored challenge which included a run across Exhibition Park and the Town Moor, wheelchair conga and sing/sign along to their favourite ABBA songs, in support of the Great North Children’s Hospital.

Northern Counties is the third in the chain of schools taking part in the baton challenge and managed to raise a fantastic £600!
