Sports for Champions Announcement

5th Sep 2019

Today in school we had a really exciting announcement.  On 24th September we will be hosting an Athlete in Carniny Primary School called David Smith to facilitate a fundraising effort for Sports for Champions.

Sports for Champions is an organisation that helps support top level athletes by funding and resourcing them to train to reach their full potential.  This support is vital to help athletes ready themselves to compete for Great Britain in the commonwealth games and the Olympics.  

David Smith is a high Jump athlete who has represented Great Britain at many sporting events.

All the children will be taking part in a circuits session designed and run for their age group. They all went home with their sponsor form today and they were encouraged to raise money from "safe sponsors"  The more money we raise, the more money we will be able to donate to Sports for Champions and the more money we will be able to raise for school! Yes that's right only some of the money will be going to Sports for schools, anything raised above our agreed support will go straight into school. 60% of the money raised goes to school and 40% goes to Sports for Champions.

We are all really excited to be raising money for this very worthy cause and we really encourage our whole school community to get behind this very worthwhile event.  

All sponsor forms and money must be returned to school by Thursday 19th September
