Sponsored Fun Run
This year's sponsored fun run is on 25 May 2016.
Windsor Park Middle School fun run took place on the school field and the children, most of who were in sports themed fancy dress, ran, jogged or walked 20 laps of the school running track, having found sponsorship of amounts per lap among friends, relatives and neighbours. The money raised will support student travel to off-site fixtures.
As well as students and staff joining in with the fun, we were also pleased to welcome former student Mr Ross Finnie, midfielder from Wolves football club who kindly joined in the fun run and the penalty shoot-out raising further valuable funds for school.
Year 8 student, Tom Page said, "Friday was something of a sporting festival at Windsor Park with every child in sports kit, the final of our FIFA tournament in the morning and our fun run in the afternoon, that it seemed a perfect day to invite a sporty guest into school. I couldn't think of anyone more perfect than Ross. He was more than happy to come in and use his football skills to help run a penalty shoot-out at lunchtime and was keen to race Mr Hedley, our PE teacher. Ross thoroughly enjoyed the day that ended with him drawing a raffle to win a bucket of goodies in aid of our Year 8s Leavers' Party."
Over the last two decades Windsor Park Middle School has raised over £71,000 through their annual sponsored fancy dress fun run. This year Windsor Park raised money for school fund and various charities. It is hoped that enough money will be raised to assist in the leasing of a 17 seater mini bus and continuing to support student travel to off-site fixtures.
The fun run took place on the school field and the children, most of who were in fancy dress, ran, jogged or walked 20 laps of the school running track, having found sponsorship of amounts per lap among friends, relatives and neighbours.
As well as students and staff joining in with the fun, we were also pleased to welcome Mr Finnie, school Governor and Mr Slack, Headteacher, who were keenly competitive and completed the 20 laps in record time!
It was an enjoyable experience for Windsor Park children and a very good way of raising money for school.
