Fun Run / Walk - Friday 1:20pm

posted Dec 1, 2015, 6:43 PM by Reception @TMCS
We hope you can come along and enjoy the festivities.

This event is a special FUN experience to get involved and help raise money for our future swimming pool. Camille and her team of helpers have organised lots of fun activities and opportunities for a good time.

  • Our Juniors will be running within our school boundaries and having fun obstacles and activities on site.

  • Our Pirongia and Maungatautari teams will head off down the Birchwood Lane extension between the gates and then along the footpath and back along the Violet McKenzie Walk/ Cycle Way, then returning back to School along Koppens Road.

  • Safety planning:- There will be over 30 adults out and about with the children on this experience and speed is not the aim, it is just the fun and taking part. First aid kits will be at strategic locations along the course with rescue vehicles if needed. Children will only ever be a couple of hundred metres away from help if needed and there will be lots of friends and helpers to be with along the way. All properties along the route will have had a leaflet drop letting them know that we will be out and about. Adults will be managing all road crossings.

  • There will be fun water experiences, as well as spot prizes, lucky dips and free Ice blocks. There will also be a BBQ available at $2:00 per sausage and bread.  

  • In the case of rain - please bring a coat and change of clothes as there is no postponement date and a walk / run in the rain can be fun.

  • Please remind children that it is a fun event. Safety is paramount not speed!

  • This is a dress up event to add to the fun. If you haven’t got dress up - wear a whanau shirt to show your support. For safety reasons - School Hats and covered shoes must be worn, along with sensible sun safe tops.  

  • If it is hot children may like to take water with them along the route.

We look forward to a fun afternoon and a boost to our emerging swimming pool funds. 

Thank you for your support and involvement.
