What better way to herald in the spring than by getting active?
And to this end, the School of Achievement has just the event for you.
The school is hosting a special 4km Spring Fun Run on September 1, from 8am.
The School of Achievement is a dual-medium school with the vision to provide quality educational intervention for learners experiencing barriers to learning and development, specifically learning disabilities, within the philosophy of invitational education.
It was the first state-run remedial school in South Africa.
In order to deliver quality education, the school needs funds and the Spring Fun Run will go towards raising funds for occupational therapy equipment for the learners.
Your R60 entry fee for the fun run will go directly towards the therapy equipment.
Registration for the event, which takes place at the school, situated on the corner of Heidelberg and Bloemhof streets in Elspark, will run from 6am to 7.30am.
EFT entries and payments are also accepted with the closing date for these being August 29.
The banking details are as follows: School of Achievement, Absa Wadeville, branch code 632005, account number 10 11 11 1358, reference: Fun run and entrant’s name.
