Pupils have been pledged over £500 for walking Horsenden Hill to aid the relief effort in Nepal.
The money, once counted, will be added to money raised at another recent fundraising event, Building a Bridge to Nepal, which took place on May 15.
In this event, the schoolgirls raised over £400 by laying a line of £1 coins from one end of the cloisters’ corridor to the other.
This initiative follows on from a recent collection from pupils and parents of 150 bags of clothing also to be sent to Nepal.
All three events are the initiative of Year 10 pupils who are keen to raise money to support vulnerable people in Nepal after the devastation and suffering caused by the two recent earthquakes.
Aisha Toussaint said: “We all wanted to do something for people in Nepal.
“It was a great walk. We didn’t just climb Horsenden Hill, we walked round and round it in a great loop and we ran down it from the top and then ran up to the top again. This was a real walk. It may seem like something small, but just by doing small things we can all have an impact.”
Headteacher Sarah Raffray said: “It is great that our girls took such an initiative, we’re so proud of them. It is just so very typical of St Augustine’s Priory girls to lead such a fantastic fundraising effort.”
Teacher Grainne Hayden, one of those who accompanied the girls, said: “These girls are a real inspiration – we’re following their lead on this.”
Catholic Independent school St Augustine’s Priory, for girls aged three to 18, is holding an open day on October 10.
