Cross Country Run & more,
picnic lunch followed by an Educational Resources Buy/Sell/Swap-meet
(This is simply 2 mum's organising 2 events sharing one day, so helpers welcome!)
Where: on the 6th of December, at the Nelson Creek Reserve and/or Hall.
Wet weather alternative for the run is games in the hall.
If good weather the Educational Resources Buy/Sell/Swap-meet will be run Car Boot Sale style.
When: Running kicks off @ 10:30
Picnic at noon
At 1:30 the Educational Resources Buy/Sell/Swap-meet will start.
Bring: Weather appropriate activity apparel such as shoes, coat, sunscreen, hats etc.
Food & drinks,
Resources to buy/sell/swap
& willingness to participate!
Educational Resources Buy/Sell/Swap-meet details:
In the afternoon after the cross country run, sprints & other events, you have the opportunity to get your unneeded resources, books, gear & whatnot together & out of the house & come see if someone else needs them or if someone else has anything that you also may find useful!
It's up to you & any interested party to price/haggle/give/ swap or agree on payment options!
If it's good weather, we will do the Educational Resources Buy/Sell/Swap-meet car boot style so that parents don't have to drag their kids over to the hall or leave them at the reserve.
If it rains there's plenty of room in the hall for you to simply rock up, claim a space and set out your stuff that you want to see gone.
Last time this was held, there were some great resources going for pennies & everyone who came found at least one thing that they wanted!
Details about the running below.
The runners will start going to the racing spot at 10:30...
Please wear shoes as some of the run is on gravel.
The athletic events will be the following long distance options
1km - 5-7 year olds
2km 7-10 year olds
3 km 11 plus.
Parent's race.... (!! ;)
Don't worry if you've never done them before! Just have a go and do your best.
The cross country run will go from 10:30 - 11 and then the other events will happen simultaneously with kids splitting up into groups. I'd love parent helpers. If you're keen to help, please let Lauretta know before hand (email below) so that I (Lauretta) can coordinate it and ensure everything runs smoothly on the day.
It would be great if you could register participants before hand. This is not essential but it would be helpful. Names and ages (Parents don't have to register their age :P)
Contact email for run participants and/or parent helpers is email@example.com or text 0274239902
The beauty of families living out education is that it is flexible & there is no one right way to do it, but we all thrive in community, so all styles and flavours welcome!
Feel free to forward to any other home un/school families you know.
Looking forward to meeting you there!
Sincerely, Elizabeth and Lauretta
