Simon on the Streets Sponsored Walk

13 December 2022 @ 09:00 - 15:00

On Tuesday, December 13th, the whole school will be participating in a charity walk round Guiseley. Children are welcome to collect sponsorship for the event, which will be in collaboration with Simon on the Streets, a Leeds-based charity who provide support for homeless people across the city. This charity has been chosen as part of our bid to inspire children to be courageous advocates for groups of people whose voice may not always be heard.

The walk will start at school and then use the old railway track through to Kirk Lane and back through Nunroyd Park. Reception and Year 1 will do an alternative walk in Springfield Park and Year 2 will do an amended version of the longer walk. The length of the full walk is 3.5 miles. Children should come to school on the day in appropriate clothing and shoes, with a water bottle which can be ideally carried in a rucksack. They may bring a snack for the route. Simon on the Streets will be providing every child with an elf hat!

We would be grateful of volunteers to marshall the walk (in shifts as the event will be staggered across the day) to stand at various checkpoints on the route to monitor when groups pass, and also volunteers to accompany classes on the walk itself. If you are able to assist in this, please email the office for the attention of Miss Brown.

We hope that this will be fun and challenging activity for the children to participate in, and we can once again support this local charity in the work they do across Leeds. As this walk is within the local area, permission is assumed. However, if you feel that your child cannot participate for medical or other reasons, please contact the office.

Yours sincerely
Matilda Brown
Curriculum Leader
