As a school family we would like to travel 1888 miles - the distance from our school to Athens, home of the Olympics, in time for Tokyo 2020

All of the money we raise goes back into the school - we use it to create special memories for the children and to improve school facilities. 

The Friends of Yaxley Infant School are launching our exciting Olympic Challenge! We have big ideas for our little people. We would like our school family to scoot, bike, walk or run a total of 1888 miles - which is the distance from the school's front door to Athens, home of the Olympics, in time for Tokyo 2020. Every household member counts so you'll see us moving our bodies together to achieve our goal. Keep an eye on here and on Facebook for our current total!

Please support our school family by donating - together we can show our children the incredible things they can achieve with their bodies and the wonder of teamwork. We would love you to comment with support and encouragement - you never know, Mrs Edson may even give you a shout out in assembly!

Thank you, as ever, for your support. We are aiming to purchase a new and exciting piece of playground equipment for the school field that encourages imagination, communication and (importantly!) fun. Physical exercise and being close to nature is linked with improved wellbeing so we hope to provide some new play equipment for our children to enjoy during their school day - they have already been discussing what they would love to play on, with your help we can bring their dreams to life!

Ps. Below are some of the children's ideas for the new play equipment. We would love to be able to purchase something special and are so grateful for anything you can contribute!
