Kids show appreciation for headteacher Victoria

PUPILS showed their headteacher she was still in their thoughts as she undergoes cancer treatment by holding their own Race for Life in the school grounds.

Kids at St Thomas’ Primary in Kilnhurst dedicated their sponsored run to head Victoria Sherwood, who was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year and has been having chemotherapy.

The school organised a fun day alongside the run, including an inflatable assault course and an alpaca petting zoo.

Year 3 teacher and PE coordinator Ryan Turner said: “It was very poignant.

“There are a number of families of pupils who have been affected by cancer over recent years.”
