Isolation Icons - The Final Result

With an extended deadline, and one final push over the Easter Holidays, a further 905.39km of exercise was logged by staff and students taking part in the Isolation Icons challenge.

Whilst this impressive effort was enough to comfortably reach the penultimate destination of St Petersburg, it was sadly 1178.23km short of the 4963km required to reach the final target of Baku in Azerbaijan. 

However, with a total of 3784.77 kilometres of exercise logged in just six weeks, the Withernsea High School community have done themselves proud in keeping active during the most recent lockdown. 

A massive thank you and well done to all participants, in particular Year 7 student Adam Hoey who, throughout the duration of the challenge, has managed to log an impressive 940.67km on his own - enough for him to travel beyond Holland!
