How to Organise the Day
Leading Up To The Day
- You will have already registered on-line.
- Your head may well have notified the parents that the school will be participating in the ChallengeAid day on the last Friday in September using the letter provided on the website.
- The school contact will probably have delivered a school assembly to the pupils making them aware of ChallengeAid at the beginning of the autumn term.
- Pupils should have been given a sponsor form before the event. This can be downloaded from the website.
- An area on site needs to be identified where the event can take place so that the pupils can gauge the distance that they travel. Ideally this could be approximately 400 – 800 metres.
- It may be helpful to assemble the pupils together in the school hall.
- Pupils should be encouraged to walk, jog or run a minimum of a mile at a pace at which they feel comfortable or any other suitable activity (See suggested activities).
- Allow the pupils to leave the hall in age groups, starting with the younger pupils, so that there is no mad stampede at the start. Form teachers can accompany their classes to ensure an orderly exit.
- The pupils should begin as soon as they arrive at the start so that there is no frantic jostling.
- Pupils should be encouraged to walk, jog or run a minimum of a mile in the course of an hour at a pace at which they feel comfortable.
- After the event pupils will need to complete the sponsor form indicating the distance that they have covered.
- Pupils should hand in their pound together with their sponsor form to the person designated by the school.
- Half the money should be kept by the school for the purchase of extra curricular equipment and half sent to ChallengeAid after all the monies have been collected.
