Run! Jog! Walk!


On Wednesday 14th May, everyone in school took part in our second Run, Jog, Walk.  From Nursery to Year 4 , from teachers to Mrs Carr in the office, everyone did their bit to raise money for 3 fantastic charities.  Nursery and Reception completed an obstacle course.  Year 1 ran 1 lap of the course, Year 2 ran 2, Year 3 ran 3 and Year 4 did an amazing 4 laps!

Mrs Watson did an amazing job of organising this event.

We would also like to thank:

  • Sainburys for providing water to hydrate the runners.
  • Our PTFA for providing biscuits and oranges to help us regain our energy.
  • Police officers Lawrence Park and Angus Watson for providing marshalling support.
  • Parents,  Support staff and Dinner staff  who marshalled the course, cheered everyone along and took photos.

Well done to the parents who ran too!

The three charities we are supporting are Tiny Lives, Marie Curie (Children of Parents with Cancer) and St Oswalds Hospice.  These charities were chosen by our school council.

Below is a note of thanks from Tiny lives.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you again for everything you have done and could you please pass our thanks on to all the teachers, children and parents for making the day a great success the children were excellent a real credit to yourself and Archibald First School.
Please let me know when the presentation will take place and I will be there along with little gifts for each class room.
I have put a link below to our facebook page and website where I have put a little something on.
Thank you again for your amazing support.
Take Care and Speak to you soon.
Please return sponsor forms and money in a sealed envelope  by Wednesday 11th June 2014.  All donations are gratefully received by our 3 charities.  Look out for further announcements about how much we have raised!
