A huge well done to the 500 students, staff and parents who took part in the Cross-Atlantic Challenge!

We did it!

At 9.10am this morning the distance of the Atlantic was crossed. Well ahead of schedule, but this is not going to stop SBA students and staff. They are continuing to row to reach Nova Scotia in Canada by the end of today. Although they are getting really tired now, the atmosphere is amazing amongst the Transatlantic crew and we have been greatly heartened to see such enthusiasm to clock up those metres at every opportunity. 

Well done and thank you to students, staff and parents who have contributed to this fantastic challenge. Students have embraced the challenge with high levels of enthusiasm and incredible work rate, despite the blisters and aching limbs. Lots of early morning starts and rowing into the late evening have made this challenge possible!
