We will be holding our Annual Walkathon on Friday week 9.
This is our major student fundraiser, it is an opportunity for the students' to raise funds whilst participating in a fun whole school walk. We ask for your support in assisting your child to get as many sponsors as possible. As child safety is a priority, we ask that you DO NOT send your children “door knocking” to seek sponsorship.
We invite all families to come along and join us on the day. We will begin the morning with our assembly over at the Community Centre and then commence with the walkathon straight afterwards. We hope to see as many parents as possible.
Over the past few years, we have raised money for our Kitchen Garden, IT infrastructure and last year we were able to add depth and variety to our reading resources. Last year we exceeded our target of $5000, which was fantastic, and we are hoping to reach our goal once again this year. Funds raised will be put towards repairing our basketball court. We will have a thermometer on the office window to allow the students to track our progress.
We also want to give back to our community for their efforts and support towards our fundraiser by offering the following:
- Children who raise $50.00 or more will receive a complimentary novelty handball.
- Every student who raises $100 or more will go into the draw to win a $100 Rebel Sports Voucher. There will be three categories (Pre-school, Junior Primary R-2, Primary 3-7)
- The student who raises the most money in Junior Primary will receive a ‘Be Active Hamper’ worth over $300 of value, and the student who raises the most in the Primary years will receive a ‘high tech scooter’ worth over $300 which has been kindly donated by Super Scoots.
We thank Supa Scootz for their generous donation.
Walkathon sponsorship forms were sent home earlier in week 4, please ensure this is filled out as money is pledged. Laps will be recorded on the form after the event so that money can be collected. However many sponsors choose to make a flat donation rather than per lap, either way is acceptable.
Please help support your child/children and our school.
If you have misplaced your sponsorship form, more are available from our Front Office.
