Gillespie News: Spartathlon & Assembly


This week someone completed an amazing mindblowing run. His name is Darren and he ran 127 miles – that is almost five marathons. It was in extreme heat and very sandy. He did really well. He put all this effort in to raise money to keep Lab_13. So far we have raised £3,787.25 (don’t forget the 25p, every little bit’s important!) which is astonishing and mind-boggling. Thank you to everyone who donated money for supporting us. Thank you Darren for doing this amazing run. It is a massive run from Athens in Greece to Sparta. That’s why it’s called the Spartathlon. If you want to help us raise money we would be glad. The link to donate is here.

Our first assembly

First off, I was worried but then when I got into it I started to really enjoy it. We introduced the Lab_13 puppet dogs’ names, science news about the Rosetta probe and comet, and shared our top Lab_13 questions from this term.

From Y3 Ben says “It was very good. Awesome. I liked getting to hear the dogs’ names, they are Pluto and Bella”
