Shore to Gate - Which Tutor Group Will Raise the Most?
Thursday April 2 will see the entire College complete our annual Shore to Gate. S2G is now traditionally run on the last day of Term 1, with our young men challenged to walk (or run) along a 9km loop track on the waterfront as a way to raise funds for both their House charity and additional student facilities.
Information sheets and sponsorship cards have gone home with students. We ask all students to attempt to raise $30, with incentive rewards given to anyone who raises over $50. Students who raise $150 are treated with a day at Wet 'n' Wild in Term 2. The Tutor Group who raises the most are treated to a pizza party - enjoyed last year by Ryan 1.
Previously the College held a number of fundraising activities throughout the year in addition to S2G. However, this year our sole fundraising effort will be S2G, with students challenged to work as hard they can to raise funds for the House charity at this one time. Half of the money raised also goes directly to student facilities, such as the House shade tents which are about to be unveiled.
In 2014 we raised an incredible $55 000 and we were therefore able to provide some solid support for our various House charities. This year our men have their target set at $60 000. In the coming weeks we'll provide more information about the House charities in addition to assisting students to develop strategies to raise their money.
S2G is always a great way to finish the term - if you are free on the day we would love for you to join us.
