On Wednesday 10th September, We are having a COMMUNITY WALKATHON to raise much needed funds for our school. The Walkathon is a sponsored event, just like our previous “a-thons”. After the success as a community event of last year’s Walkathon, we are “going around again”!!
We want all students (and parents who would like to join us on the day!) to get sponsors to give them a set amount of money for completing laps of the course, which will take place around our extensive grounds.
Preps to 2s will complete 4 laps (approx. 2.5km)
3s to 6s will complete 8 laps (approx. 5.0km)
Sponsors can be parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbours – just about anyone that you know. You can have as many sponsors as you want. You can even sponsor yourself! When you find a sponsor, just fill out the ‘My Sponsor Sheet’. Then, when you finish the Walkathon, call or visit your sponsors and ask for their donations. Parents wishing to participate can collect a sponsor form from the office, or by clicking here.
The Walkathon will take place on Wednesday September 10, starting at 2:00pm and finishing by 3:30pm. We hope you choose to join in the fun and really help Killara Primary School. A sausage sizzle, coffee van and oranges will be available for purchase on the day, provided by the Killara Parents and Friends Association. A pre-ordering system will be made available for students, leading up to the day.
All students who have some sponsors will receive a mystery prize once they have completed their laps. All students who raise $10 or more will go into the draw for one of many sports packs. Major prizes will also be drawn for students who raise over $20. Raffle tickets will be allocated for the draw based on the amount raised.
1 ticket for $20-$29, 2 tickets for $30 – $39, 3 tickets for $40-$49 and so on (increasing by one ticket for each $10 bracket).
The more you raise the more chance you have of winning!
The major prizes are:
1st: An Ipad Mini (value $479)
2nd: A Laptop Computer (excess stock, unused) (value $300)
3rd: A Toy World Voucher (value $100)
Who wouldn’t want a chance at winning one of these awesome prizes?
