Dear Parent/ Carer,
We are very excited to tell you that South View Federation will be welcoming top Commonwealth Gymnast, Kelly Simm to the school on Friday, 30 June 2023.
Kelly will be leading a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils throughout the day, and will finish her visit with an inspirational assembly, followed by a question and answer session.
The aim of the event is to inspire the pupils to be more physically active, but just as importantly, encourage them to discover and pursue their passion in life. The event will both connect the pupils to an extraordinary athlete role model and raise money to improve physical activity in the school, while also supporting both athletes and para-athletes, so that they can continue to inspire the next generation.
Your child will be bringing home a sponsorship form to use to help raise money for the event. You can also sponsor your child by visiting: https://sportal.sportsforschools.org/events/landing clicking on the button “Set up a Fundraiser Page”. All money raised will be shared between Kelly, to directly aid her in her training and living costs, and to the Federation to buy new sports equipment to enhance our opportunities to be active during the day. We appreciate that the cost of living crisis is a real concern for all of us and so any money you are able to raise is very much appreciated. Even a few pounds can make a real difference.
Please ensure that the sponsorship form and any money raised is returned to the school by Friday 7th July 2023.
Please also make sure that your children come to school on Friday 30th June wearing their school PE Kits and ready to exercise!
Thank you in anticipation of creating a terrific and memorable event.
