Read-A-Thon

25/07/2016
Our school is once again participating in the School Read-A-Thon from the 25th July to the 19th August. The School Read-A-Thon is a stimulating, fun and literacy based fundraiser that ensures we send the right message to our students about developing literacy skills and creating a healthy mind. The main focus of this event is on participation. Family support is most appreciated as we encourage all students to get involved
 
To participate, we are asking students read 30 minutes a day, five days a week, over the 3 weeks from 25th July to 12th August. This is completed in personal time, so we suggest parents get heavily involved with the School Read-A-Thon. You can do this by listening to your child read a variety of books, and ensuring they are fulfilling the requirements of reading for 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. The last week until the 19th August is the time to collect or deposit all money and choose your prize.
All students have received a Sponsorship Form to help collect sponsorship on behalf of the school. The funds raised will be used to purchase: Chaplaincy Resources and Technology Resources.
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.  In the Sponsorship Form you will find all the tools you need for successful fundraising, and more!
Students who raise at least $10 will receive a reward for effort. We have educated students on the dangers of door knocking without adult supervision, please reiterate this at home. The best people to ask for sponsorship are people you know (e.g. friends, family, work colleagues and neighbours).
A new way to help your child reach their sponsorship goals is through online fundraising. Students raise an average of $103.38 when using online fundraising! To benefit from this new feature, log on to readathon.com.au/students today!
Once fundraising is complete please help your child fill out Step 4 – How to Claim Prizes, on the back page of the Sponsorship Form. Then tear it off and return it with all money raised (unless deposited online) to the library on or before August 19.
If you have any questions feel free to contact Wendy Coates in the library or Karen Fawcett in 1D.
Happy Reading!!
