School Walkathon

Walkathon

Our school will be conducting a Walkathon in Week 2 of Term 3, on Friday the 3rd of August, 2018.

 

There will be two different courses that the students will be involved in, depending on their year level.

 

Early Years students from Transition to Year 2 will be walking around our school grounds and trying to complete between 1 and 5 laps of the school. Primary students from Year 3-6 will be walking to Lake Alexander and back.

 

We are asking that students collect sponsorship for the Walkathon during the school holidays and the first week of Term 3. Please discuss with your child who they should approach for sponsorship so that they are aware of the many safe options e.g. close family and friends, known neighbours etc.

 

This is one of many fundraising activities that our school organises each year. We rely on fundraising for school improvement projects and we would love to have the children actively involved in this.

 

Last year our fundraising efforts provided much needed play structures for our older students. This year’s major focus will be to update our audio visual equipment (sound, lighting, projector and screens) in our hall. This will enable our assemblies, award ceremonies, school performances and community events to be far more effective. It will also allow our PE and Performing Arts classes the ability to use this equipment when needed in their learning activities.

 

There will be prizes awarded for students who collect the most sponsorship in each year level. The sponsorship forms will be sent out prior to the holiday break.
