This week we have been holding assemblies in KS2 to encourage the pupils to take part in the Children‘s Cancer Run as part of the Ovingham Middle School team. It would brilliant if as many of you as possible could also join us! We will be repeating this for KS3 next week.
If you haven’t done this event before it is a brilliant morning out to raise money for a fantastic charity (North East Children‘s Cancer Research). The event is held at Gosforth Race Course in Newcastle and this year it is on Sunday 19th May. It is a fun run with distances of 1, 3 and 5 miles – we encourage our pupils to do the 5 mile event but they could cut off and do the three mile run. It is a brilliant family day out so please feel free to bring along your whole family.
If you’re interested, registration is online and very straight forward, the office have letters with all of the information in you need. If you enter before the end of March it’s cheaper!
Go on you know you want to!
