Grade 3 Harmony Day
Harmony Day is celebrated around Australia on 21 March each year. It’s a day when all Australians celebrate our cultural diversity. As part of this day all grade 3 students are asked to wear one item of orange clothing to support this cause. Students are still required to wear full school uniform on the day other than their one item of orange clothing. There is no cost involved for the day.
We will be holding an Adidas School Fun-Run as a major fundraising event this year. The event will be held on 28th March at Brimbank Park.
The Adidas School Fun-Run is a healthy, fun and active fundraiser that ensures we send the right message to our students about getting active, having fun and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The main focus of this event is on participation. Family support is most appreciated as we encourage all students to get involved.
All students have received a Sponsorship Form to help collect sponsorship on behalf of the school. The funds raised will be used to purchase: sports equipment and support the PE Program in 2012.
We ask all parents to read the Sponsorship Form and sign the front page to grant permission for their child to fundraise and participate in this event. Students who raise just $10 or more will receive a reward for effort. In the Sponsorship Form you will also find many other benefits like the chance to win a family holiday in Disneyland!
Students wanting to train for our event and to receive advice from sporting heroes like Scott Prince, Dale Thomas, Sally Pearson and other elite Adidas athletes can do so by logging onto schoolfunrun.com.au/students and clicking create a profile. Students who register will be in the running to WIN a Nintendo Wii and bonus Wii Fit Plus!
Finally, we would like to welcome parents and family members to attend the Adidas School Fun-Run event day at Brimbank Park on 28th March to help cheer on the students.
If you would like to volunteer and help out on the day please contact the school on 93631187.
Thank you, good luck and happy fundraising!
