As a school the Royal Latin School is committed to making active links with our local community through science, mathematics and sport.
How are the New Year's resolutions holding up? Do you need some extra motivation to stick to those fitness goals? Then we have the answer for you:
The 600 Minute Challenge
For one month, starting 1st February we are challenging the whole school community and the wider local community to do 600 minutes of activity (roughly 22 minutes a day, less than 2% of your day). And all for a good cause— supporting the 600 Campaign Sports Campus. Prepare to make February an action-packed month . . .
Text BFIT18 £5 to 70070 (for those 18 or under)
Text BFIT17 £10 to 70070 (for adults)
Text BFIT17 £10 twice (total £20) to 70070 (for a family — up to six people)
All those who complete the challenge will be entered into a free prize draw, and there will be prizes for the best family activity photos — and yes, walking the dog counts! Share your stories and photos with us on Facebook and Twitter @RLS600, we’ll also be sharing some great ideas to get you started.
Over the next year we are proud to be hosting a series of free lectures for the local community in the Lillingstone Trust Community Laboratory in the Discovery Centre.
