Finally there is a Walkathon again!
Many of the primary school children have never participated in a walkathon before.
Therefore, there was a kick-off event in May where the primary school students were visited by Dylon, Robin, Simon and Sid from Y11/SISS Secondary. The IB students explained the key facts about the event to the children:
- What is a walkathon?
- Who can participate?
- When does it take place? and - last but not least -.
- How can everyone raise money together?
Apart from the idea of participating together in such an event, there was one detail that the children particularly liked: they would all like to meet the "chicken man on the bike", who gives exhausted runners a boost from time to time during the walkathon!
It was a great assembly - we would like to thank the four IB students and Mr Rafal Milerski, who supports the organising team, and look forward to seeing many families at the Walkathon!
