Students at Brooke Weston are being encouraged to raise money for Sports Relief by taking part in a range of activities organised by the PE Department.
With a poster competition, quiz and sports competitions there is something to appeal to everyone and it is an opportunity to raise much-needed cash for Sports Relief which helps the most disadvantaged people in the UK and abroad.
Teacher Miss Feeley has already presented an assembly on the fund-raising opportunities that will be taking place next week: Students can design a poster to be judged by the art department and the best one will be used to promote next year’s Sports Relief school fundraising. Entries, and a £1 entrance fee, can be handed into the finance department by this Friday.
A quiz is going to be held on Wednesday 4th April in downstairs citizenship. Teams of up to five people can take part in the event, that runs from 16:15 and entry costs £2.
For sports fans there are dodgeball and football competitions taking place on Monday 2nd April and Tuesday 3rd April respectively. Dodgeball teams need between six and 11 players while football squads need between five and nine players. Entry is £5 per team and entry forms need to be returned to finance as soon as possible.
Other challenges include the rowathon, which is taking place in PE lessons. It costs 50p to enter and the winner will be the person that rows the fastest mile. There is also the opportunity to take part in the BW Sports Relief mile after school on Thursday 5th April.
If all else fails then you can simply make a pledge by collecting a form, filling in the reason why you want to support Sports Relief and handing it back in to Miss Feeley or Mrs Bryan. The aim is to complete one full lap of the sports hall using pledges which cost 20p each and people can purchase multiple pledges.
More details and forms for all the sports events are available from Miss Feeley or Mrs Bryan and money for sports teams, pledges and the poster competition should be handed to the finance office. Money from the quiz participants should be handed in at the event.
Miss Feeley said: ‘Sports Relief is a really worthwhile charity so we have come up with a whole range of fund-raising ideas so anyone, from the most to the least sporty, can take part and donate to a very good cause.’
