Read-A-Thon:  Information for parents and carers regarding sponsor money.

Throughout March pupils in Year 7 are taking part in a sponsored Read-A-Thon to help raise money for the charity Read For Good. Students collect sponsors for every page, book or hour they read during the Read-A-Thon.

Pupils should record the books they have read and the sponsors they collect in the sponsor card sent home earlier this term (pupils should see Miss Ling if they need a new sponsor card).

The deadline for sponsor money to be returned is Friday 20th April. Sponsor money can be sent in any of the following ways:

  • Online at the readathon website:
  • By cash
  • By cheque (made payable to Readathon with the sponsor’s name and address on the back.)

Please ensure any cash or cheques are sent in a sealed envelope with your child’s name and tutor group clearly stated.

*This deadline also applies to any pupils who took part in our 24 hour read-a-thon.

Pupils should also return their sponsor card, with details of the books they have read, to Miss Ling. Prizes will be awarded to the individual pupil, and form group, who read the most books.

If you require any further information, please contact Miss Ling.
