Friday March 21st is the bi-annual Sport Relief fundraiser organised to raise money in support of people less fortunate than ourselves. As we have in previous years, we will be holding an event to show our support for such a fantastic cause.
Children will be able to come to school in their own clothes, preferably dressed in red, as these are the colours of Sport Relief.
After-school, on the field, we will be hosting our very own run – with each class having opportunity to take part. Infant children will run 0.5 mile whilst junior children will run a full mile. These races will be for fun and will be non-competitive.
Entry to the event will be £1 per adult/child, with all money raised going to Sport Relief.
Alongside the races, there will be a selection of other games/competitions that children will be able to take part in to raise additional funds.
School Council will be organising a cake sale which will run alongside the competitions. They are requesting donations of cakes and biscuits that can be sold off on the day.
The aim is for the event to last for around an hour, with an expected end time of 4.30pm.
As I’m sure many of you are aware, Sport Relief merchandise is available in Sainsbury’s stores. Themed T-shirts and socks have proven very popular in previous years.
Hopefully the sun will shine and we’ll have an enjoyable afternoon – something which has always been the case in previous years.
It’s great for the children to feel part of an event that runs on a national level, whilst gaining an understanding of how we can support others. Watching the event on TV later in the evening, and over the weekend, will give additional meaning to everyone who takes part.
We look forward to seeing everyone (in red!) on the afternoon.
