Sponsored Walk/Silence at St Thomas More Catholic School


This year the school sponsored walk/silence will take place on Friday 2nd November. The vast majority of pupils choose to participate in the sponsored walk, which is the route from school through Winlaton Mill, around Derwent Walk and back to school. The route is approximately 8 miles in total, therefore pupils must have appropriate clothing and footwear. The walk will take place even if it is raining, so it is advisable that pupils bring in a change of clothing. School staff will supervise pupils at all times and refreshments will be available at the halfway point. Lunchtime will be as normal 11.50pm to 12.50pm, with registration at 12.50pm. Normal lessons will resume at 12.55pm until 15.35pm. Pupils involved in the silence must come to school in uniform and bring work or reading materials. In recent years the response from parents and pupils has been excellent. We plan to spend the funds on refurbishing the chapel and for extra additions in the library.

The options for paying the sponsorship money are by cash, cheque (payable to St Thomas More school, please write pupil’s full name & pastoral on the back) or via ‘My Donate’ website. The link for the ‘My Donate’ web page is on our school website. Please remember to indicate if you are eligible for Gift Aid to enable us to reclaim 25% of your donation.

All pupils must return their sponsor form by Friday 16th November 2018, even if they have not collected any sponsors.
