Weʼre raising £20,000 to help fund a new school mini bus and donations to Brecon Mountain Rescue & Children’s Mental Health.
Crickhowell High School will be completing a whole school walk within the Black Mountains on Tuesday 16th July. This will involve all students and staff and will cover a distance of around 15km in the mountains!
We are aiming to raise a large amount of money. We will be making a donation to Brecon Mountain Rescue to celebrate the fantastic work that they do in our local area. We will also be aiming to raise money to fund a school minibus – something we so desperately need to allow us to become more independent and flexible in offering trips and sporting events to all our students. A donation of the total funds will also be directed to Heads Together, the new mental health initiative by Their Royal Highnesses Prince Harry and Prince William.

7th June – Duathlon
On Friday 7th June a team of enthusiastic teachers from Crickhowell High School completed a gruelling duathlon in torrential rain to the top of Pen Y Fan. The challenge involved 30km of off road cycling and 10km of walking to the summit of Pen Y Fan.
This was one of a series of challenges that staff and pupils are undertaking at the school. We are in desperate need of a school mini bus and this year all staff and pupils are fundraising for this cause.
The duathlon was a tough event, made more difficult by the stormy conditions. During the event we were self sufficient and managed to complete the challenge despite broken bike chains and punctures on the way.
Staff who took part were: Andrew York (PE teacher), Andy Pole (Wellbeing Officer), Rob Jacob (English Teacher), Harry Bowsher (English Teacher), Nicola Jones (Community Sports Officer), Nick Brown (Business Manager), Catie Gilbert (Head of PE), Aled Treherne (PE Teacher) and Oliver Sims (Product Design Teacher). We were supported by Bikes and Hikes in Talybont.
