The school walkathon is the first big event on the P&F calendar for 2016! The walkathon will take place next Friday March 18th at 1:30pm on the Wyatt Avenue oval opposite the school.
As well as being a successful fundraiser, the walkathon is designed as an enjoyable afternoon for all involved. I would encourage all parents and friends to come along and cheer on our walkers! Your support will make a difference!
For the benefit of Lower First and families new to the school, the walkathon works as follows:
- A sponsorship form will be included in the weekly newsletter over the following weeks.
- Each child is encouraged to gain sponsorship pledges from family and friends either on a per lap or a one off basis.
- On the day of the walkathon, parent volunteers from each class record your child’s laps. (Class parents will be in touch)
- You will receive your child’s lap tally result the week after the walkathon.
- The school holiday break is used to collect your pledges.
- We accept cash or cheque (made out to John Colet P&F) or direct deposit.
Please deliver all money raised to the office by the second Friday of Term 2.
The P&F looks forward to a successful and enjoyable day.
