Sponsored Walk 28th June 2019

Dear Parents/ carers,

I am sure you are aware that money is very tight in all schools currently. One of the challenges for us is to fund any developmental work in IT. We have got the opportunity to work with a company to supply IPads to the school (6 per class is where we are aiming), initially to trial with Year 1 and 5. However if we can raise some money we can extend this across the school and have developmental input from external experts to get the most from the IPads in an educational setting and infrastructure work that is necessary to support their use in school.  

Therefore I have arranged a Sponsored walk with the aim of raising at least £3000. The walk will take place on Friday June 28th.

The walk will be from Sea Lane Cafe in Goring along the Seafront to Shoreham ending at school, I have approval from Worthing and Adur Councils. The first part of the walk will be for adults only, meeting at Sea Lane at 6.30 am for staff, Governors, parents/ carers and friends. We will call at the following points Worthing Pier 7.15, Lancing Green (near the Perch) 7.45 at which point children (Year 2 up)  accompanied by parents can join and Shoreham Beach Green (Reception/ Year 1 ) 8.30 – arriving at school for 9am.  The full distance is about 8 miles.

The aim is all participants will be sponsored. I recognise it will be difficult for some parents to take part but we can put children into supervised groups if necessary.

This is a great opportunity to support the school through participation or sponsorship. The event is on the Swiss Gardens PTA Just Giving page. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/jacqueline-king5

Nearer the time we will send out forms to sign up for participation.

If you have any queries please contact me.

Yours sincerely
