Hundreds of students ended the half term with a march around one of Norfolk's historic halls.
The 1,400 students at Hellesdon High School were ferried to Blickling Hall on Thursday to pull on their walking shoes for the sponsored stride.
All the pupils had raised money for one of three local causes - the Mancroft Advice Project, which works with schools and young people, the Refugee Crisis Appeal, run by the Diocese of Norwich to help Syrian refugees resettle in Norfolk and Waveney, and Pets as Therapy, a charity which runs therapeutic visits from specially trained pets.
The school took groups of youngsters to the hall throughout the day, with each completing a lap of the stately home.
And, despite grey skies and an autumnal chill, it was all smiles from the pupils as they embarked on the walk, a part of the school's busy fundraising programme.
