Year 7 'Fun Run' Fundraiser!

posted 26 Oct 2014, 08:41 by Web Admin

The PE Department are holding the  annual Year 7 Sponsored Run straight after the Half Term holiday, in Period 3 on Monday 3 November. 

This has been an annual event and has raised thousands of pounds for both charity and specialist sports equipment over the last few years.  Students run or walk around the Academy field for an hour and are asked to find sponsors for each lap completed. 

Prizes are awarded for the most laps completed and  the most money raised  both individually and as a Tutor Group, with the aim that we extend this event to ‘inter-community’ as well.

This event also includes a fancy dress competition, with this year’s theme being T V and Movies. Again this can be individual but could also be linked to Tutor Groups or communities.

We would really appreciate your help in supporting this year’s event by sponsoring students, encourgaing them to take part, or by helping them to think of fancy dress outfits to help make the most of this fun event.

This year’s chosen charity is Children in Need as our charity so our target date  for handing in sponsor money is Friday 14 November - Children in Need day!

Students will come to school in uniform but will get changed over lunch and be ready to begin the run/walk at the beginning of Period 3.  

If you have any questions please contact the PE Department.
