Your child should have brought home a letter and sponsorship form, outlining our plans to raise money for a school minibus this year (the letters will also be on the letters home page of the school website, under the tab ‘News’). A school minibus will make transport to and from sporting competitions smoother and more efficient, as well as opening up more opportunities for our pupils in the local area.
The first fundraising effort, will be in the form of a fun run in Everton Park, on Friday 12th February. It would be great to see all the children raising some money, using the sponsorship form accompanying the letter. If parents and families can take these to work and/or pass on to friends so that we can gain as much sponsorship as possible! Sponsorship money can then be collected over half term and brought back into school with the sponsorship form, to your child’s class teacher.
We would also like to invite parents and families to join us at the run and the times are detailed below. We would ask parents and family members to come to school at the time allocated for their children’s run, to accompany them over to the park in a safe and controlled manner and back to school after the run.
Reception and Key Stage One pupils: 9.30 – 10.30am (x2 laps)
Year 3 and 4 pupils: 11.15 – 12.15pm (x4 laps)
Year 5 and 6 pupils: 1.45 – 2.45pm (x4 laps)
Route: the route takes in half of the upper section of the park. One lap equals 0.5km. Children in Reception and Key Stage One will complete 1km, with children in Key Stage Two completing 2km. The start/finish area is just through the gates of the park at the Northumberland Terrace entrance.
Thank you very much for your support and we hope to see you there with us!
