Getting Fit And Having Fun At Canterbury Academy

Canterbury Academy hosted a sports event with a difference last Thursday when the Academy Sports Partnership held its first ever Fit & Fun Challenge Day.

Educational Life has teamed up with local I.T. Company, Think Big Tech, to highlight the plight of Luddenham School in Faversham who, unbelievably, is the last school in Kent to have a viable Internet Connection.
