The St Emilie’s P&F COLOUR FUN RUN Fundraiser is to be held on the 19th of October (Friday, Week 2, Term 4) and families are asked to really get behind our school by starting to collect sponsors between now and then.
After the run there will be music, really yummy food and refreshing drinks on sale to help families have a really awesome experience with friends, family and staff!
So in a nutshell, we are hoping to make this event a great family experience by being both a $$$ FUND raiser and a community 🙂 FUN raiser!
What to do:
- Circle the Colour Run date on your calendar and invite family and friends to do the same!
- Read through the P&F Colour Run Information Page which explains how to create a Student Profile Page.
- Help your child to collect sponsors.
In addition to the online Student Profile, they will also receive a paper copy of a sponsor sheet and a plastic bag for monies, however we would encourage most families to use the online option as much as possible and to closely supervise your children if they are visiting a neighbour (or other) for sponsorship.
If you collect monies in person, parents are asked to then transfer this amount to the online sponsor form. This way money can be tracked easily and kept safe.
Money raised will go towards the purchase of a number of different resources, opportunities and major capital items which will ultimately benefit all children in our school.
We will use the money raised to help towards the purchase of:
Classroom RESOURCES and EQUIPMENT across the school
Maintaining the MATHLETICS program
Providing a DANCE teacher throughout Term 4
Maintaining the LITERACY PRO program
Contributing to the purchase of SHADE SAILS over the back playground areas
Contributing to the purchase of a new PHONE/INTERCOM system throughout the whole school
Contributing to the cost of SOUND AND LIGHTING for the bi-annual end of year Family Concert ….
We are really relying on every family to support this one whole school fundraiser for the year.
While we are hoping every child will have the opportunity to actively participate on the day (Mums and Dads are also welcome to join in on the fun), if for some reason your family will be unable to make this date, then a family donation of at least $30.00 is asked for, to help us meet our fundraising target for the year.
We all know that kids – both big and small will love the experience and that is of course what it is all about! Please try to sound excited and positive and help to make the event a really happy memory for your family and our school!
