Rambala Community Uganda

Last year our sponsored run was a huge success and we raised just over £6000 for our link school in Uganda and new PE equipment. This year the children will again be participating in a sponsored run on Friday 26th June. This year the money raised will go towards class budgets and again to the Rambala Community in Uganda. 

The sponsored run will take place on the archery field which is adjacent to the school. The children in KS2 will run approximately ¾ mile, the children in KS1 will run approximately half a mile and the children in Reception will run 1 lap of the field. The event should be enjoyable and we would like everyone to take part. 

Medals will be given to the first 3 boys and girls in each year group. Please feel free to come and support your child. We will aim to stick as clos
ely as we can to the following timings but please be aware that they are only estimations so we would advise you to arrive early to avoid missing your child run! 

9:40 – 10:00 Reception

10:00 – 10:20 Year 1

10:20 – 10:40 Year 2

11:00 – 11:20 Year 4

Please can you make sure that your child comes to school wearing sun block, a hat and that they have a named bottle of water. If there is light rain we will still continue with the event, otherwise we will reschedule it. There is a sponsor form attached to the back of this letter and we would appreciate it if all of the sponsor money could be collected and handed into school by Friday 3rd July. 

50% of the money will be put towards class budgets. This will allow all teachers to buy much needed new resources for their classrooms. The other half of the money will go towards supporting children in Uganda. We have formed a link with an orphanage and school in Uganda, the children have been reminded of this an assembly today. Currently, older children are pen-pals to these children in Uganda. 

This will be the third year which we have raised money. In our first year the money went towards building latrines. The second year, the money raised was towards building a school for orphaned children. This has now means that 400 children now have access to an education. The assembly at school has informed the children about the conditions that these children learn in and how we would like to raise money to help their learning environment.

We look forward to raising lots of money and helping our own community whilst helping others as being global citizens.
