I think every single human being would have been touched by this man and this so sad announcement. An inspiration for our children and will be spoken about in the future in many a History lesson and more. His family should be so proud. https://t.co/W4WXwgQ4AK

Children trek to Tokyo in lockdown

Children trek to Tokyo in lockdown

Posted: 12th February 2021

Lockdown has not stood in the way of adventurous young explorers.

Students and staff at Mark Hall Academy are taking a virtual trip to Tokyo as part of a lockdown challenge.

The mission was set at the start of lockdown for the school community to walk, run and cycle the 9,524 kilometres to Tokyo, the next host of the Olympic Games.

Distances travelled are being logged by the school, with the aim of reaching the destination by March 8.

Sasha Kelly, head of PE, said: “The pandemic has forced us into leading a more sedentary lifestyle compared to normal. As a PE department, we wanted to encourage ‘devices down, heart rates up’ and to get together as a Mark Hall team to achieve the ultimate challenge – trekking to Tokyo.

“Ultimately, this challenge targets all aspects of health – physical health in getting active, social health in that we are getting out and collectively contributing as a team and mental health in that students have the opportunity to clear their minds, which positively affects their mood and their thinking. We are supporting and helping to improve the health and wellbeing of our young people not only now, but into the future.

“It has been fantastic to see the levels of participation in this challenge. It goes to show our students realise the importance of physical activity for their health.”

The challenge has seen an element of competition, between year groups, between staff and between Year 7 and 8 and Burnt Mill Academy students, all keen to reach the target the quickest.

Kayleigh Peacock, Year 7, said: “You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them. I really enjoyed doing the Tokyo Challenge; it has been really good for my mental wellbeing.”

Once schools return after lockdown, the challenge will be followed-up with a range of Olympic activities in PE lessons.
