The St Veronica’s stair climbing challenge is a brilliant way to keep fit even when the weather is poor. The idea behind the challenge is to accomplish climbing some well-known feet’s such as Snowdon, Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, or even all three and the Three Peak Challenge, on to Kilimanjaro and finally Everest!

Thank you to everyone who has participated in the the St Veronica's Sports Challenges, the results are now in!


We have had over one hundred entries and have seen some incredible improvements over the four weeks with children showing us their school games values of determination, honesty, respect, self belief, passion and teamwork! We have enjoyed viewing your videos, photographs and emails and are so impressed with the different ways you have been keeping active whilst at home.


There is a PDF, below the results, which can be printed out at home for all of the children that have taken part over the last half term.


The children will receive their bronze, silver & gold certificates when we return in the autumn term.


Have a fantastic summer and stay safe.
