Pupils ready for peaks challenge P


armiter‘s students, along with their friends and family, are gearing up for the Three


Peaks Challenge, which starts later this month. The challenge involves climbing the three


highest mountains of Scotland, England and Wales-Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon. Sixteen teams from the school are taking part,


some will climb all three peaks in 24 hours, including travelling time between each destination, while other teams will tackle the peaks in 48 hours. Some will climb one, two or three peaks over


the weekend. Whatever the challenge, the aim for all groups is to raise £20,000. Those embarking on this adventure are doing so in aid of both the Parmiter‘s Parents‘ Association and the Teenage Cancer Trust. Twenty-five per cent of the money will go to the trust and will be spent on supporting teenagers and young adults suffering from cancer.


The charity is the only UK charity dedicated to


improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the six young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day. More than £900 has been raised already and


those involved would really appreciate any more donations for their efforts, the Parmiter‘s School


website provides more information. Visit www.parmiters.herts.sch.uk. Best of luck to all those involved.


National Maths Challenge Final A team of four pupils from Parmiter‘s will be


competing against teams from across the United Kingdom for this year‘s UK Team Maths Challenge Trophy. The team, Daniel Nickalls, 13, Stephen Griffin,


13, Jonathan Sinclair, 14, and Louis Dunham, 14, were winners in the regional final held in Ashlyns School in Berkhamstead. Their victory granted them the opportunity to


compete in the National Final at the Royal Horticultural Halls in London on Monday, June 18. About 1,500 schools entered the competition and 80 have qualified to take part in the final. by Rhiannon Folan
