Marathon Miles for Mrs Duck

A week ago, our amazing headteacher, Mrs Duck, was marching from Salisbury to Winchester as part of the ‘marathon miles’ fundraising initiative led by the St. Bede HSA.  Mrs Duck set off early morning from Salisbury, walking to the cathedral and then following the route of the Clarendon Way through Broughton, King’s Somborne and arriving back at Winchester Cathedral before coming on to the St. Bede Summer Fayre. It was a beautiful route, challenging in places and in total and Mrs Duck walked just over 29 miles taking over 63,000 steps.


Mrs Duck explained that it was further than she had ever walked in a day and not being known for her sporty pursuits meant that she set off with trepidation hoping she’d make it to the end and not wanting to let herself, or the children who have clocked up their own marathon miles down.   She further shared that arriving back at school was overwhelming and she was so touched by the welcome she was given by the children, it’s a memory she will never forget.  Well done Mrs Duck – what an amazing achievement!
