Sportathon

On Friday 15th March we will be holding the Sportathon to raise money for Comic Relief. We encourage everyone to dress up in 60s-70s (hippie) style: feel free to go all out! Those who wish to take part need to raise donations through sponsors: £5 for 1 activity; £10 for 2 activities and £15 for as many activities you like. S1-S3 can take part in sports all day and S4-S6 must not allow the sports to impact their scheduled classes. The Craigy mile is open to all for a donation of £1.

The schedule and sponsor forms will be coming out shortly.

If anyone has any issues with raising money to take part please speak to Mrs Jack.
