On Friday the 29th of November, all students will be taking part in our first Fun Run! 

Students will bring home an information booklet in week 5 of this term, which will explain how to set up an account for your child so that they can collect sponsorship from family and friends for the run. Students then also have the opportunity to claim a prize based on the amount they have raised for our school!

 

Not only will this be a fun activity for our students but there will also be opportunities for parents and carers to be involved too! We will be looking for volunteers who have a current Working with Children's Check to help on the day. If you need to apply for the check, please go to https://www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au/individuals/applicants/how-to-apply

If you would like assistance, please contact our EAL & Community Partnerships Leader, Rebecca Thornton, to arrange a time to meet.
