The Headmaster’s “Lockdown Link-Up” Challenge

Lockdown Link Up - How Far have we gone?

At the start of this week, Mr. Russell challenged the St David's College community to get active by taking part in a brand-new whole school virtual challenge, St David’s College “Lockdown Link Up”. The main aims are two-fold; to promote healthy routines and maintain social connections.

We may be a small school based in Wales but we have many friends and family around the globe. The aim to complete a virtual link up with our current pupils, past pupils, teachers, parents, governors, and friends, through physical challenge. As well as hearing from our international community, different school departments will help us to learn about the places we pass through along the way.

The way it works is that each pupil (and everyone in the family is encouraged to join in!), creates a habit of doing some active movements each day. The PE Department has set out all sorts of workouts and suggestions of how to stay active after lessons have finished. Pupils can post videos to share with their friends of what they’ve been up to on the PE’s FlipGrid site.

Workouts can be converted into kilometres and each day, these, (along with dog walks, yoga sessions, bike rides and jogs etc) are added to the Teambuildr App so that we can calculate the ‘whole school’ total distance that we have traveled.

Mr. Russell is very keen to see if we can 'virtually' travel the distance of the whole way around the world. That's in the region of a massive 40,000km!

So, Mr. Russell has started us off from the Lion's Gate, and we’ve already passed by the Greenwich Meridian Line that passes through London - collectively covering over 500km since Monday! Now it's up to us. We're heading eastward into Europe/Africa and then beyond, ‘linking up’ with the people we know as we pass their line of Longitude.

Keep your eyes on social media and if we’re heading your way, then tag us with #lockdownlinkup

Let’s stay active together!
