Trainers, walking boots and wellies at the ready – FOHNS are challenging you all (pupils, families AND staff!)  to travel the equivalent distance of Hook Norton to the North Pole – that’s 2,622 miles!

You can cover these miles any way you like – you can walk, run, swim, cycle, scoot, horse ride or even cartwheel! The important thing is that you keep us updated so that we can add everyone’s miles together and track it on our fantastic North Pole-ometer outside school. 

You can enter your miles quickly and easily here

Hook Norton School Virtual Balloon Race
Hook Norton School Virtual Balloon Race

On the 31st October, 144 balloons from Hook Norton School, joined in a Nationwide virtual balloon race to see whose balloon could travel the furthest in 7 days. 

We had one balloon burst on the way out of the launch site, others which popped on mountain tops and some which travelled 100’s of miles! 

Children at the school and their families, were able to log on at any point and track where their balloon was heading. On occasion, they were going backwards and at times they had a 20mph wind helping them on their way! 

At one point, one of our balloons was 2nd in the country which was very exciting, but sadly this was overtaken and none of our balloons finished in the top 100. 

However, we were able to offer prizes for our top 3 balloons:

  1. Rebecca – Family ticket to Fairy Tale Farm
  2. Jumping Jessica – £15 gift voucher for The Entertainer
  3. Fun in the Sun – Kinetic Sand donated by Wilkos

A huge thank you to Fairy Tale Farm in Chipping Norton, The Entertainer and Wilkos for kindly donating the prizes.

We hope everyone who participated enjoyed the race and that you all feel full of happy beans knowing that the event raised a fabulous £338!
