Chatham fundraising Walk-a-thon

With each child's step, and your generous support, we will be gaining educational items such as the much needed replacement of a set of djembe drums for the music program. We will also be able to continue enhancing our school grounds and replacing the Weybridge St gates with gates that self-close. And, we may even be able to install new air conditioners in all of the Year 5 and 6 classrooms as well!  We are challenging every family to raise $40.00!

 

This will take place in the first week back next term on Thursday 12th October (Back up day Thursday 19th).

 

On this day, students from Prep to Year 6 are encouraged to come in their House Colours and earn points for their House for every lap walked. (Optional House coloured items are available through Surrey Clothing). Please ensure that your child wears comfortable walking shoes / runners on this day. Students’ laps will be recorded on a card by parent volunteers who will also earn points for their child’s House colour by assisting on the day! Parents who get into the spirit and dress up in House colours can earn points for the child/ren’s House too.

 

We ask that each child asks as many people (ie grandparents, family friends, special friends) as possible, to sponsor them for each lap they complete. However, please do not let your child door knock to raise money. A sponsorship form is attached to this letter for you to use for each child.  Please return the completed sponsorship forms with the money to your classroom teacher by Friday 27th October.  If you require extra sponsorship forms, please get them from the office.

 

Need more incentive? The child who raises the most money will receive a Pogo Stick generously donated by Windmill.

Year 1 and Year 6

9:00-9:40

This is a happy, fun-filled event and we would love to have as many parents/carers/grandparents/special friends as possible as spectators to help support their fantastic effort.  

 

But wait there’s more: On the day there is also a yummy sausage sizzle.  This lunch is available to pre-order prior to the event on QkR and is sponsored by Bread Street and Ben the Butcher. See order form as attachment in email sent by Sue Doherty today and jump on QkR or return the form to the office.
