Sponsored Events 2017
We have a MARATHON battle taking place this Easter break! While most of us will hopefully be relaxing, eating some chocolate eggs and enjoying the start of spring, we have two members of "Team Highfield" going the extra mile (or miles) for our learners.
Headteacher Simon will be battling the Brighton Marathon, while parent, Tanya Shenton, will be pushing herself in the Paris Marathon. Simon has promised not to take a break from his run for some fish and chips or a cheeky ice-cream and Tanya won't be breakfasting upon croissants and hot chocolate. They will be going head to head in two different countries on the same day, Sunday 9th April, but who will get the best time?
We would really welcome your support and donations, both Tanya and Simon have been training very hard for this marathon effort. They would love to see their efforts turned into £££ for the school's iBoard Fundraising Appeal for the classes. They really are running for Highfield Learners and you can help them both past the finishing line.

Past Fundraising Events:

Team Highfield: We are currently seeking friends, families and supporters of the school to RUN for Highfield School this year.
For a couple of years now the HFPA have put together a ‘Team Highfield’ to run the Grunty Fen Half marathon in September. The team have been very successful in fundraising linked to this event, helping improve accessible IT within the school including iPads for each year group and interactive iBoards for a number of classrooms. Unfortunately the Grunty Fen half marathon is not going ahead this coming September, so we are looking to join another half marathon around the same time. We want to get a Team Highfield 2016 together, starting by joining in some races leading up to the larger race later in the year. Of course doing the half marathon is compulsory, but if you would like to join us for one or more of the races below then you would be really welcome. These won’t be for fundraising, more for preparation training or simply just run for fun! We would also like to collate the total Team Highfield miles run in training and in competition for a visual mile-o-meter within the school, we have some exciting plans to showcase Team Highfield’s efforts!

If you would like to take part in any of the events let me know and I will draw up a list of people we will expect on the day. You can either leave a message at the front desk, or via your son/daughters diary, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to show your interest in joining Team Highfield. You will need to register yourself for the above runs. We hope to see you at one or more of the above!
