Achieving Excellence By Learning And Doing

Dear Parents/Caregivers RE: Edmund Rice Day Walkathon: Friday, 4 May 2018 Our annual Edmund Rice Day walkathon will be held on Friday, 4 May. As in previous years, the focus of our fundraising is Project Kenya. Support from families and students at last year’s event was outstanding and achieved close to $66,000 in donations. With 2018 marking the 12th year of supporting Br Beausang school in Kenya, we hope the day with its planned activities will prove to be extra special. Edmund Rice Day is one of our most important celebration days and for this reason we expect full attendance, regardless of whether your son is able to participate in the walkathon. Attendance and involvement will contribute to your son’s house points and his individual house colours. The timetable for the day will be: 8.46am – 9.10am

Homeroom: Collection of donor cards and money from students

9:15am – 10.15am
