Our “Hallowe’en Sponsored Walk” is due to take place this Friday, 29nd of October at 10:15 am. We are keeping a close eye on the weather forecast and keeping everything crossed for a dry morning!
It is an important event in the school calendar; it gives an opportunity for the school community to come together and have some fun, whilst raising much needed funds!
Sponsor Cards were issued to the oldest child in each family, we ask your support in assisting children in gathering sponsorship. All families that raise over £40 will be entered into a draw, for prizes of Smyths’ vouchers: 1x £100, 1x £50 and 1x £25. A second draw will take place for a further £25 voucher for all those families who return their sponsor cards.
Routes are as follows:
P4-P7: will follow our traditional route- crossing outside the school onto the river walk, then the Tullymacrieve Road, Cranny Road, Lough Road, Glendesha Road, Forkhill Road and back via the River Walk to school. (Approx. 2.8 miles)
P1- P3: will walk to the Football Club and back (approx, 1.6 miles).
Nursery: Our Nursery Class will walk through the Main School Yard, to Ti Chulainn Car park, then onto the Bog Road and back to school via the main school gates to Nursery.
Parents/Guardians are cordially invited to participate, we ask that you fall in and walk at the back of your child’s Class or Year group. Our P7 Year group will lead us all off and the event should last approximately 1 hour.
First dinner sitting is on return at 11:30 am. On the day dinner can be served as a “take away bag” to facilitate any Parent wishing to take their child/children home on completion of the walk. Please let the class teacher know in advance if you wish to do this and dinners can be bagged up and ready.
We know that “sensible” footwear may not be in keeping with some of the costumes planned… but be mindful of the surface water on the roads and the need for footwear suitable for a long walk! Everyone should also bring a waterproof coat with a hood.
Finally, we have a number of children with a particular fear of clowns, please NO CLOWN COSTUMES.
We hope everyone has fun and that we raise lots of money, this can be returned after the mid-term break.
Thank you in advance for your co-operation,
P Mc Donnell
