Dear Parent and Carers,
Sponsored Fitness Event and Sport Relief
On Wednesday 9th March, we will be welcoming International athlete Frederick Afrifa who will be spending the day with us.
Frederick is an International Sprinter and is a two time national gold medallist. He was London Schools Champion in 2011, World Youth Relay Champion in 2013, Surrey County Champion 2015 and National Champion 2018. He will be leading a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils and assemblies with a question and answer session for the school.
The aim of the event is to inspire the pupils to be more physically active, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life. The event is both to connect the pupils to an extraordinary athlete role model, and to raise money to improve physical activity for the school while also supporting GB athletes (including Paralympic athletes). We would therefore like pupils to come to school in their PE kit on Wednesday 9th March.
A fundraising page has been set up on our website. Pupils can be sponsored any amount to take part- there is no minimum donation. More than one donation can be made if other family members or friends would like to contribute. Please click the link below:
The money raised will be used towards new sports equipment for the school as well as supporting the GB athletes. Please ensure that all sponsorship is paid by Friday 11th March.
