Beat the Street - Best in Newham!
Back in the Autumn term pupils at Ranelagh Primary School were rigorously travelling to and fro on Newham streets, all in the name of the annual Beat the Street competition. Beat the Street, delivered on behalf of Diabetes UK, the British Heart Foundation and the Borough of Newham, is a competition aimed at inspiring millions of people to eat better, get active and be healthy by walking, cycling or running.
Children at Ranelagh were all given their very own exclusive Beat the Street ID cards which were then tapped a plethora of times on Beat the Street boxes, fastened to street lamps, trees, fences or anywhere of interest across the borough.
This year the competition stiffened, with schools competing against each other across the whole of East London rather than within the borough. Ranelagh is very proud to have placed 7th overall, with an amazing 64,395 points (a near 50,000 increase from last year). Ranelagh was also the only Newham school who placed in the top 10! Well done Ranelagh!
